Immigration has occurred at some point in thar background o'all Canadians, even those who be now called “nati'e” or “first nation” peoples. Choose 'un o'these topics:

  • Me ancestral homeland
  • T' arri'al o'me ancestor(s) in Canada
  • Me immigration t'Canada

Select ye most appropriate t'ye. Focus it t'fit yer circumstances, knowledge, an' interest.

Now take a page o'notes, p'raps consultin' a parent, grandparent, or family records. Think about ye importance, even t'heroic, legendary, or mythic qualities ye may see in this topic – then write yer “disco'ery draft.” In t'next version heighten these o'ertones by clothin' bare fact in a variety o'poetical de'ices (especially metaphor). Test yer prose by readin' aloud, before publishin' ye final version.
