Indigenous Poetry (hannah)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

In this class, students will explore and examine indigenous poetry from across the country working with the anthology When The Light of the World Was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through: A Norton Anthology of Native Nations Poetry. The poetry in this book elevates voices and illuminates unseen histories across time and space. 

Students will compare and contrast poetry from different regions of the country while learning the stories of poets, tribal nations, and historical contexts to better interpret meaning. This class will include the memorization and recitation of a chosen poem as well as regular discussion, analytical writing prompts, and creating your own poetry and/or artistic expression inspired by what we read.
