In The Art of Excavation, poet Leilani Tamu delves into the complex and multifaceted nature of the region that we know as the Pacific. In poetry that is by turns fierce and political, tender and insightful, contemplative and intimate, Leilani creates a beautiful 'ie toga (fine mat) that weaves together living memory as an exploration of history in all of its many forms and complexities. Challenging the popular orthodox approach of 'digging up' the past, Leilani reclaims the process of excavation as a creative metaphor for reframing and retelling Pacific stories. This book is a vibrant and challenging offering from a gifted ambassador for poetry and Pacific art.
