Native American Poet Susan Deer Cloud is in Rochester for Two Events

Susan Deer Cloud is a Métis poet and fiction writer of Blackfoot, Mohawk, and Seneca heritage. She received her B.A. in General Literature and Creative Writing and her M.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing from Binghamton University. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College.

Thursday, January 10th, at 7 p.m. she will be reading at the Memorial Art Gallery in conjunction with the exhibit “From Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3” . The 140 works in this major traveling exhibition celebrate the richness and diversity of contemporary Native and First Nations art. In addition to interpreting-and often redefining-such traditional media as basketry, bead work, textiles, wood, metalwork and stone, the artists in Changing Hands 3 have embraced video, photography, and performance and installation art. Among the themes they explore are the natural and spiritual worlds as sources of inspiration; the reinterpretation of traditions; and the often politically charged issue of cultural assimilation.

Also, on Saturday, January 12th, she will be running a poetry intensive workshop at Writers & Books from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Hope to see many of you there!
