    Indigenous Ecopoetry: Environmental Perspectives from Those Who Came First

    12:45 pmPennsylvania Convention Center (In-person & online)

    (Lucille Lang Day, Kimberly M. Blaeser, Denise Low, Craig Santos Perez, Kimberly G. Wieser)

     

    Indigenous peoples are those who’ve had the longest relationship with any given place. They have the deepest knowledge of the plants and animals, and they are the longest-serving stewards of the land, often for 10,000 years or more. Respect for the land is an integral part of indigenous cultures. The panelists will discuss what indigenous writers bring to the broader conversation of poetry concerning environmental preservation, ecosystem damage, and

    climate change and read representative poems.
