Mapping Indigenous Poetry: Joy Harjo and Layli Long Soldier

January 12, 2022 @ 7:30 pm

$10 – $15

516 Arts presents an evening with Joy Harjo, Muscogee (Creek) Nation, an internationally renowned performer and writer serving her third term as the 23rd Poet Laureate of the United States, in conversation with Layli Long Soldier (Oglala Lakota), a poet, writer, feminist, artist, and activist. Harjo will speak about her signature Poet Laureate project, Living Nations, Living Words: A Map of First Peoples Poetry, which features 47 Native Nations poets through an interactive ArcGIS Story Map and a newly developed Library of Congress audio collection. Harjo says, “Like other living American poets, Native Nations poets use the tools of knowledge and creativity to ride the waves of language, even as we also tend to our indigenous cultural systems and communities.”

The event at the KiMo Theatre will be followed by a book signing for ticket holders at 516 Arts across the street.
