Get Lit! and We the Indigenous have teamed up to bring you readings from four authors whose work ranges from poetic prose to personal essays that utilize experimental form. We the Indigenous is a virtual reading series celebrating Indigenous authors from the Pacific Northwest to the Southwest. Joining us will be Tiffany Midge, Elissa Washuta, Jake Skeets, and the founder of We the Indigenous himself, D.A. Navoti. These authors will be reading from their recent award-winning works, showcasing Indigenous literary talent and voices. Following the readings, D.A. Navoti will lead the group in a short discussion about their creative work.
