Teaching Poetry: Living Nations, Living Words

Join us for a special conversation on Living Nations, Living Words, the signature project of the US Poet Laureate, Joy Harjo. 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 of Social Studies.

Living Nations, Living Words shows, 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, which features the participating poets reading and discussing original poems.
