Navajo Times featuring Luci Tapahonso

“When Luci Tapahonso was asked to be the Navajo Nation’s first Poet Laureate, she immediately thought of one goal.  “I really want to let students know that their daily life is really a poetic life,” she said during an interview with the Navajo Times. The Navajo Nation officially named Tapahonso as its first Poet Laureate during an induction ceremony held May 16 at Navajo Technical College. As the nation’s Poet Laureate, Tapahonso, who was born in Shiprock, N.M. in 1953, will promote literature and poetry, as well as the Navajo language and culture, according to Irvin Morris, chair of Navajo Technical College’s school of arts and humanities.”
