Native poets, dancing wordsmiths

Sherwin Bitsui, Laura Tohe and Joy Harjo were among the featured poets at the Native Voices Symposium at the University of Arizona. The leading Native poets in the Americas read from new and published works, laughed together and challenged the publishing industry. Watch for the series on the voices and issues in upcoming issues of Navajo Times, including poets Rex Lee Jim, Simon Ortiz and Ofelia Zepeda. (Photo Brenda Norrell)
