Grasses Grasses Grasses: A Night of Poetry & Healing with Six Indigenous Poets

Join us for a reading borne out of a conversation between award-winning Ogala-Lakota poet Layli Long Soldier and MarginShift co-curator Thomas Ahneesan (Santee Sioux, Dakota Nation) about the mass graves of Indigenous children discovered recently in Canada. The evening will feature a sampling of North American Indigenous poets for a night of poetry and a Medicine Wheel ritual for the women and children erased by settler colonialism. Reading will feature Layli Long Soldier, as well as poets: Trevino Brings Plenty (Portland/Lakota), Thomas Ahneesan (Tacoma/Sioux), Cedar Sigo (Suquamish), Laura Da' (Eastern Shawnee) and Fabian Romero (Purépecha). They will be joined by Howie Echo-Hawk.
