Jordan Abel is a Nisga’a experimental poet whose work with techniques of cut-up, erasure and found text marks him out as an entirely original voice in First Nations writing. At the same time, Abel’s work engages deeply with both traditional methodologies and contemporary themes of being an Indigenous writer in a majority-settler society. Abel’s work has recently been recognised in his being awarded the Griffin Poetry Prize.
