Listen to these Native poets read their work

As we begin another new year in these United States of America, it’s an opportune time to listen in to the creative voices of descendants of the original inhabitants of these lands.

Late last year, Hugo House partnered with Poetry Foundation to host a night of readings by a diverse group of Native poets. The evening was emceed by poet Natalie Diaz, and included readings by Celeste Adame, Laura Da’, Jennifer Foerster, Casandra Lopez, Sara Ortiz and Cedar Sigo.

This Poetry Across the Nations reading took place on December 7 at Fred Wildlife Refuge.
