Native America Calling: Native queer poetry
Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Two-Spirit storyteller, Joshua Whitehead (Ojibwe Cree), says a poet’s job is to “to speak truthfully and honestly about how the world filters through your body.”

While not all Native LGBTQ2 poetry is about Native identity or sexuality, those elements color the poets’ work.

Native America Calling will get a sampling of works by Indigenous LGBTQ2 poets and discuss how their deeply personal stories paint a vivid picture of adversity, strength, and their relationships with their culture and the world around them.
