Gregory Scofield

One of Canada’s leading Aboriginal writers, Gregory Scofield has earned both a national and international audience for his six collections of poetry.  Known for his unique and dynamic reading style, he blends oral storytelling, song, spoken word, and the Cree language. His maternal ancestry can be traced back to the Métis community of Kinosota, Manitoba, which was established in 1828 by the Hudson’s Bay Company. Scofield’s most recent collection of poetry, Louis: The Heretic Poems, was released in the fall of 2011. He currently lives in Maple Ridge, B.C.
