Savageau retells and re-imagines creation stories, revealing a landscape of trees, ponds, rivers and mountains rich in meaning for Abenaki people, and weaves traditional, personal and family stories, with stories of colonization and resistance.

Savageaus unhistory tells the stories of her people without privileging the moment of contact with Europe as the defining moment for viewing the culture.Mother/Land is beaded with gems from her mothers jewel box--poems that tell stories of her mothers life, and the complexities of survival and love in a family of mixed heritage.Savageaus work signals the reemergence of a people who have been described as hiding in plain sight.

In contrast to stereotypical associations of Native Americans with Mother Earth, this poetry highlights the bittersweet complexities of the relationship between a woman and her homeland, whose bodies seem to be constantly under siege.
