Living Nations, Living Words: An Anthology of First Peoples Poetry

Joy Harjo (Editor)
Pre-Order   Ships 6 June 2021

Description

Joy Harjo, the first Native American poet to serve as US Poet Laureate, has championed the voices of Native American peoples past and present. Her signature laureate project gathers the work of contemporary poets into a national, fully digital map of story, sound and space, celebrating their vital and unequivocal contributions to American poetry.

This companion anthology features each poem and poet from the project to offer readers a chance to hold the wealth of poems in their hands. With work from Natalie Diaz, Ray Young Bear, Craig Santos Perez, Sherwin Bitsui, Layli Long Soldier, among others, Living Nations, Living Words showcases, as Joy Harjo writes in her stirring introduction, "poetry [that] emerges from the soul of a community, the heart and lands of the people. In this country, poetry is rooted in the more than 500 living indigenous nations. Living Nations, Living Words is a representative offering."
