The Humboldt Department of Cultural Services is very excited to announce an evening with Saskatchewan Poet Laureate Carol Rose GoldenEagle.

Carol is a successful novelist, poet and journalist. A survivor of the 60s Scoop who eventually was able to reconnect with her language, culture and family as an adult, Carol is a poetic and compelling voice for Indigenous women in Saskatchewan.

“The Poet Laureate position is to act as ambassador and champion for poetry and writing in the province, to celebrate the people, spirit and land,” says Cultural Services Director Jennifer Fitzpatrick. “Carol speaks to that in so many ways. It’s exciting to note that the Poet Laureate committee noted that they were really moved by her energy and her passion.”

GoldenEagle has stated that everyone has a story and everyone is a storyteller. Her work speaks to her connection to the land and her culture, and it informs anyone listening about the human experience as a part of a greater creation.

Carol’s life experiences, wisdom, and poetic eloquence make this an evening not to be missed. As part of the City of Humboldt’s pilot project, Relationship Building and Reconciliation Through Living Heritage, this evening is an opportunity to reflect, connect, learn, and grow. The evening begins at 7pm at the Humboldt & District Gallery on Tuesday, March 28.
