Living Nations, Living Words: An Anthology of First Peoples Poetry

By The Library of Congress, edited by Joy Harjo
W.W.Norton & Company

“A powerful, moving anthology that celebrates the breadth of Native poets writing today. … Each poem showcases, as Joy Harjo writes in her stirring introduction, ‘that heritage is a living thing, and there can be no heritage without land and the relationships that outline our kinship.’”
