celebrating the release of
Tending the Fire: Native Voices and Portraits
published by Universtiy of New Mexico
Christopher Felver's Tending the Fire celebrates the poets and writers who represent the wide range of Native American voices in literature today. In these commanding portraits, Felver's distinctive visual signature and unobtrusive presence capture each artist's strength, integrity, and character. Accompanying each portrait is a handwritten poem or prose piece that helps reveal the origin of the poet's language and legends. As the individuals share their unique voices, Tending the Fire introduces us to the diversity and complexity of Native culture through the authors' generous and passionate stories.
A screening of Chris Felver's film documentary Ferlinghetti:A Rebirth Of Wonder will be aired on KRCB North Bay Public Media, Digital Channel 22.1 on Sunday, April 16 @ 9:30 p.m.
