Diné (Navajo) Poetry.
October 12-14, 2006

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.
