Native Voices: Indigenous Language and Poetry

June 14 2007 - August 16 2007

The University of Arizona Poetry Center presents biennale symposia on poetry and interdisciplinary explorations in the arts and humanities. Recent symposia include Native Voices: Indigenous Language and Poetry and Conceptual Poetry and Its Others. Occasional one-day events, such as A Tribute to Gustaf Sobin, are also presented.

The Poetry Center, in partnership with American Indian Language Development Institute (AILDI), presented Native Voices to explore themes of indigenous language from the perspective of storytellers, poets, and scholars. This national symposium brought together more than a dozen distinguished writers and storytellers who presented their work, led classes, and engaged in discussion with one another.
