Luci Tapahonso: Land, Memory, and the Power of Words in Contemporary
Diné (Navajo) Poetry.
October 12-14, 2006
Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association 60th Annual Convention,
DoubleTree Resort Hotel at Reid Park in Tucson, Arizona.

Grounded in traditional Navajo oral tradition and storytelling, the
poetry of Luci Tapahonso celebrates the complex interrelationships
between words, memory and the vast and beautiful landscape of the
American Southwest. Through her work published in A Breeze Swept
Through (1987), Sáanii Dahataal: The Women Are Singing (1993) and Blue
Horses Rush In (1997) she has bridged the gap between traditional Diné
oral tradition and modern poetic form.
