Native American Poets Playlist: Poems in the Gallery


Sat - Mon, Oct 12 to Oct 14, 9:00am - 5:00pm


Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology
Indigenous Peoples Day Gallery Activity

Enrich your museum visit by listening to an evocative playlist of contemporary poems by Native American authors. Wander freely across the first-floor galleries to see where the poems take you and expand your understanding of Native arts and cultures. The poems, drawn from a powerful recent anthology, New Poets of Native Nations (edited by Heid E. Erdrich; Graywolf Press) celebrate Native poets first published in the twenty-first century. Hear the exhibits “come into voice” and experience the museum in a new way. Borrow a free audio player with regular museum admission.
