The Light of the World Came Through

(LeAnne Howe, Kim Blaeser, Heid Erdrich)

Panelists discuss the making of the landmark anthology When The Light of the World Was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through. The poetry, songs, and chants in the anthology span four centuries and includes 161 Native nations poets. There is nothing like it that can account for the lands and the poets and poetry that came from these lands. Panelists will discuss the editorial structure of the book that begins in the East to North and continues West and then to the South.
