An award-winning American Indian scholar and poet dedicated to gathering and disseminating authentic Native American literature speaks out on a great variety of topics that reveal many facets of her own background and worldview. We hear of the Laguna Pueblo land in New Mexico where she was raised, and the special quality of places where habitation by humans “and supernaturals” has been stable and continuous for centuries. She shares some of her favorite aspects of contemporary Native American literature, and her hope for a renewal of American culture of all kinds. “It is the end of the world, from some people’s point of view,” says Allen, “but it’s the renewal of something more ancient and more true.” (hosted by Michael Toms)
