More Information

Poetry, creative writing, and rich stories interlace at Voices from the Urban Indigenous Campfire, a specially-curated celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, featuring three Indigenous creatives.

Award-winning poet Rena Priest (Lummi Nation, Washington State Poet Laureate 2021-2023), first-person novelist Deborah Taffa (Quechan Nation, Laguna Pueblo; Whiskey Tender), and leading playwright Rhiana Yazzie (Navajo, 2020 Steinberg Playwright Award) represent voices reaching well beyond their own tribal affiliations. Alongside an invited member of our own region’s Monacan nation, these distinguished writers delve into tribal identity and the beauty — and tremendous challenges — of keeping culture, land, and traditions close.

Programmed by guest curator Andre Bouchard

This performance will last approximately 80 minutes with no intermission.
