Rebecca Thomas is an award winning Mi'kmaw poet and activist who does not want to be a poet or activist. Her ultimate goal is to make Canada a better place for her Indigenous community because so many people tend to forget they were here first. She has accidentally found herself as the former Poet Laureate of Halifax. Her first book “I'm Finding My Talk” has been shortlisted for the First Nations Community Reads Award. Her most recent collection of poetry called "I Place You Into the Fire" was listed as one of CBC's top 20 books of 2020.
