Andrew Suknaski

Poet and visual artist Andrew Suknaski was born on a homestead near Wood Mountain, Saskatchewan, in July 1942. He has published over twenty-five books. His collection The Ghosts Call You Poor (1978), won the Canadian Authors Association Poetry Award in 1979. Suknaski's poems have appeared in such anthologies as Number One Northern (1977) and Studio One: Stories Made for Radio (1990). He has worked as a researcher for the National Film Board and contributed to such films as The Disinherited (1985) by Harvey Spak. In 1978, Spak made a documentary of Suknaski entitled Wood Mountain Poems. Suknaski's Polish and Ukrainian heritage, his concern for First Nations, and the people and place of Wood Mountain feature strongly in his realist poetry, and his work continues to be studied across Canada. Andrew Suknaski lives in Regina.
