The Saskatchewan prairies are filled with light and spirit and life. This Singing Land, kanikamot askiy invites you to explore this inspiring landscape in the company of some of the province’s most accomplished writers. Think of it as a “literary field guide” to the plants, insects, birds and animals of the northern plains.
Conceived with the wide sweep of the prairies in mind, this project is especially dedicated to the urban grasslands of Saskatoon, notably the Northeast and Small Swales. Miraculous survivals of a century of aggressive development, the Swales are home to a dazzling array of life, including many rare and threatened species. Tragically, inexcusably, the future of the Swales is not secure. As the land sings to us, we sing to celebrate and protect its well-being.
