Native Poetry Rooted in the History of America

Living Nations, Living Words, the signature project of United States Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, conveys through poetry that Native people and poets have vital and unequivocal roots in this country. The project features a digital ArcGIS StoryMap, which integrates an interactive national map of 47 contemporary Native poets—and connects to a new online audio collection that features the participating poets reading and discussing original poems. On March 24, 2021, at 4 p.m. (ET), teachers are invited to join a special conversation on “Living Nations, Living Words.” Leading the discussion will be specialists from the Library of Congress and members of the National Council of Teachers of English and the National Council for Social Studies. The event is open to the public.
