As I walk the land with Wolves and Buffalo I reflect on my murdered Cree grandmother, and my colonized ancestors, both human and nonhuman, while honouring their memory. I also consider the historical near extinction of Wolves and Buffalo and reflect on the present-day environmental sustainability of these more-than-human beings. aen loo pawatamihk is Michif (Métis language), which means Wolf dream or I dream of Wolves.
