Joy Harjo in Conversation with Layli Long Soldier: Living Nations, Living Words - Chicago Humanities Festival

Poetry and heritage are alive and intertwined in Joy Harjo’s signature project as America’s first Native Poet Laureate. Living Nations, Living Words is an interactive map and accompanying anthology of Native Nations poets and poems from across the country, speaking to themes of displacement, visibility, persistence, resistance, and acknowledgment. Join Harjo and award-winning poet Layli Long Soldier for a conversation about the cadence, topography, and lineage of poetry.

The program is presented in partnership with the Poetry Foundation and the Native American Support Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
