'Recover. Rebuild. Reclaim Self' Book Signing Held at Seven Dancers

 

Eahwahewì , author of 'Recover. Rebuild. Reclaim Self'.

On April 4th, the Seven Dancers Coalition hosted a book signing and discussion with the author known as Eahwahewì. The first of two events took place at the Akwesasne Library, the second taking place at the Seven Dancers Coalition Building. The author, Eahwahewì travelled from her hometown to come to Akwesasne to discuss the non-fictional personal essay, which turned into a book. Eahwahewì, Oneida, Turtle Clan, was born and raised in Toronto.

The book is called "Recover. Rebuild. Reclaim SELF", which is powerful and inspirational as it details one woman's ability to recover from sexual assault through her traditional teachings. The essay is an excellent read for anyone, but especially for someone who has lived through a similar experience. It is empowering to know that a person can speak their truth and write their truth, and be heard.

Eahwahewì sat down with those that were able to make it to the book signing, and discussed why she decided to write and publish her essay, Eahwahewì stated, "I wrote the book to help others, because I was content with keeping it to myself."

When asked if she was open to individuals reaching out to her after reading her book - whether it be for guidance and support or just to have a listening ear she said, yes. Readers can reach out to her through her e-mail: eahwahewi@gmail.com. If anyone is interested in purchasing one of her book, it can be bought through Amazon.
