In Nłeʔkepmxcin — the language of the Nlaka’pamux First Nations — N’shaytkin means “a relation that has passed on, or those that came before us.” Chris Bose’s new novella — incorporating elements of faux-memoir, film script and storyboards as well as historical documents, maps, and pictographs — explores the failure of a mine tailings dam from five perspectives in BC’s interior. Set in and around the reserve of Nkemci’n outside Spences Bridge, Bose’s interwoven narratives tackle the impact of colonialism, environment disaster, and indigenous mythology told with subtle humour and deft introspection.

Written by Chris Bose. Drawn by Chris and Jayda Bose. Edited by David McIntosh. Dramaturgy by DD Kugler.

Chris Bose is a writer, multi-disciplinary artist, musician, curator and filmmaker. He is Nlaka’pamux/Secwepemc and currently spends his time in Kamloops, BC. He is a published poet with Kegedonce Press. The drawings in N’shaytkin were created in combination with his daughter Jayda Bose.
