Terese Marie Mailhot's debut book, “Heart Berries,” recalls a childhood darkened by abuse, addiction and abject poverty. "Indigenous identity is fixed in grief," writes Mailhot, who grew up on the Seabird Island Indian Reservation in British Columbia. Mailhot joins us to discuss her memoir and how her identity as a native woman influences her work.

Guests:

Terese Marie Mailhot, author of "Heart Berries: A Memoir", editor at The Rumpus, Tecumseh Postdoc Fellow at Purdue University
