Solomon Ratt has been reflecting a lot lately on his upcoming retirement, and the birthday that’s a little speed bump en route. On this anniversary of his arrival in that “Little Hospital” on the trapline in 1953, we’ve assembled a few readings of this new little poem, to wish him all the best in this next trip around the sun!

Solomon Ratt wiya omasinahikêwinis
kipî-tahkonîn kayâs âcathôhkîwina
ikwa “kimiwanihkîs” kititikawin.
