Native American Heritage Guide: WELCOME

Celebrating the achievements and contributions of Native Americans

First Native American Poet Laureate, Joy Harjo

"Harjo’s second term began Sept. 1, 2020, and will focus on her signature laureate project, 'Living Nations, Living Words: A Map of First Peoples Poetry.' This digital project, developed in conjunction with the Library’s Geography and Map Division, will be created using ArcGIS StoryMaps, a web mapping application geared toward storytelling, to showcase contemporary Native American poets from across the country."

From Library of Congress Poet Laureate Program.
