I am thrilled to work with Professor Gloria Chacon from the Literature Department to organize Poetic Landscapes, UC San Diego’s first evening of Indigenous poetry, storytelling, and spoken word.  Our guests for this first edition: Gordon Johnson, Tria Blu Wakpa, Amrah Salomon, and Diana Cervera. We are extremely happy to report that the Rincon Youth Storytellers, a group of young artists from the Luiseno community of Rincon will join us as our opening act.  The evening will conclude with an open-mic session, so come prepared to share your words, your voice, and your stories!
