Description

Returning the Gift: Poetry and Prose from the First North American Native Writers' Festival held in 1992 was an unprecedented gathering and celebration of Indigenous authors. Co-organizer invited each of the 300 writers to submit an original piece for inclusion in this anthology. He selected the best of the 200 plus submissions for this collection. Included in this 369-page volume are works by well established authors such as established writers like Duane Niatum, Simon Ortiz, Lance Henson, Elizabeth Woody, Linda Hogan, and Jeanette Armstrong. Also included in this work are Joseph Bruchac comments on the current state of Native American literature and the significance of the festival, and Geary Hobson traces the evolution of the event itself.
