Mackenzie, a Cree millennial, wakes up in her small, one-bedroom Vancouver apartment clutching a pine bough she had been holding in her dream just moments earlier. When she blinks, it disappears. But she can still smell the sharp pine scent in the air, the nearest pine tree a thousand kilometres away in the deep prairies of Treaty 8. Mackenzie continues to accidentally bring back items from her dreams, dreams that are eerily similar to real memories of her older sister and Kokum before their untimely deaths. As Mackenzie’s life spirals into the living nightmare--crows follow her around and she receives texts from someone claiming to be her dead sister-- it becomes clear that the dreams have terrifying, real-life consequences. Desperate for help, Mackenzie returns to her family in her small hometown in Alberta. Together, they work to uncover what is haunting Mackenzie before something irrevocable happens to anyone else around her. Haunting, fierce, an ode to female relationships among women and femmes and the strength found in kinship, Bad Cree is a gripping, arresting debut by an unforgettable voice.
