About this event

In this ORIGINS Writers talk we are joined by poet, language activist and educator Natalie Diaz to discuss her recent works, including POSTCOLONIAL LOVE POEM (Faber & Faber 2020) a poetry collection exploring love and identity and hailed as "breathtaking" by the Guardian.

Natalie Diaz was born and raised in the Fort Mojave Indian Village in Needles, California, on the banks of the Colorado River. She is Mojave and an enrolled member of the Gila River Indian Tribe. Her first poetry collection, When My Brother Was an Aztec, was published by Copper Canyon Press in 2012. She is 2018 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, a Lannan Literary Fellow and a Native Arts Council Foundation Artist Fellow. She was awarded a Bread Loaf Fellowship, the Holmes National Poetry Prize, a Hodder Fellowship, and a PEN/Civitella Ranieri Foundation Residency, as well as being awarded a US Artists Ford Fellowship. Diaz teaches at the Arizona State University Creative Writing MFA program.

Supported by Beyond the Spectacle.

Border Crossings’ ORIGINS Festival is a multidisciplinary celebration of Indigenous arts and culture from around the world.
