Native Voices | Indigenous American Poetry, Craft, and Conversations

Please join us for the release of the new anthology, Native Voices: Indigenous American Poetry, Craft, and Conversations.  Readings of poems and conversations by the co-editor, CMarie Fuhrman as well as local writers, UI Faculty, and Indigenous Community members.

In this groundbreaking anthology of Indigenous poetry and prose, Native poems, stories, and essays are informed with a knowledge of both what has been lost and what is being restored. It presents a diverse collection of stories told by Indigenous writers about themselves, their histories, and their present. It is a celebration of culture and the possibilities of language, in conversation with those poets and storytellers who have paved the way. A truly synergetic collection of contemporary and early Native voices.

CMarie Fuhrman’s poetry and nonfiction has appeared in multiple journals including Yellow Medicine Review, Cutthroat a Journal of the Arts, Whitefish Review, Broadsided Press' NoDapl Compilation, High Desert Journal, Sustainable Play, Taos Journal of Poetry and Art, as well as several anthologies. She has served as guest editor for several publications and is Poetry Review Editor for Transmotion Journal.  CMarie is the 2019 recipient of the Grace Paley Fellowship at Under the Volcano in Tepotzlán, Mexico.  She is a 2019 graduate of the University of Idaho's MFA program where she is the Project Coordinator for Indigenous Knowledge for Effective Education Program (IKEEP).  CMarie resides with her partner, Caleb, and dogs, Carhartt and Cisco, in West Central Idaho.
