Joséphine Bacon was born in 1947 in Pessamit. She is a director and a writer and has worked as a translator and interpreter. She is one of the most successful authors in Québec. Joséphine Bacon says of herself that she is not a poet, but that her nomadic and good-natured heart speaks a poetic language that echoes the echoes of the ancients who have marked her life.
Mémoire d'encrier published her first anthology Bâtons à message - Tshissinuashitakana in 2009. In 2011 followed the book Nous sommes tous des sauvages, which she published together with José Acquelin, in 2013 Un thé dans la toundra - Nipishapui nete mushuat, and in 2018 Uiesh • Quelque part.
Joséphine Bacon, nomad of the Tundra, invites the reader to discover the vast landscapes through her poems and thus recalls the essential: beauty, simplicity and sensuality.
