Join us for an engaging and generative teacher-focused conversation on “Living Nations, Living Words,” U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo’s signature project. Leading the discussion will be specialists from the Library of Congress and members of the National Council of Teachers of English and the National Council for the Social Studies.

Living Nations, Living Words” shows, through poetry, that Native people and poets have vital and unequivocal roots in the United States. The digital project features an ArcGIS StoryMap, which integrates an interactive national map of 47 contemporary Native poets, and connects to a newly developed Library of Congress audio collection featuring the participating poets reading and discussing their original poems.

This session is co-hosted by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS).
