Multidimensionality has always fueled the work of Native poets. In this reading/performance sponsored by In-Na-Po, Indigenous Nations Poets, participants will share work that demonstrates some of the ways contemporary Indigenous poetics resist the static finality of a text aesthetic. Working broadly across the arts, these writers enmesh and transform poetic experience. Whether through song, picto-poems, mini poetic dramas, concrete poetry, or multi-lingual and multi-vocal works, their performances will lift the literary text into other visual and aural dimensions.
