"Here is poetry of a new time—an era of witness, of coming into voice, an era of change and of political and cultural resurgence...forceful and subtle, hysterical and lyrical, ironic and earnest, sorrowful and joyful, and presented in ways harder to define, but made of the recent now, the lived realities that poets of Native nations write."—Heid Erdrich, introduction to New Poets of Native Nations

In this discussion of contemporary Native American literature, we dive into the rich diversity of Native writing today, and how writing itself can be a homeland. Featuring Heid E. Erdrich (New Poets of Native Nations), Julian Talamantez Brolaski (Of Mongrelitude), Jennifer Foerster (Bright Raft in the Afterweather), and Greg Sarris (How a Mountain Was Made), Tribal Chairman of the Federated Indians of Graton Rancheria.
