NEA Big Read Keynote: Bring Them Home with Layli Long Soldier, Patti Hibbeler, Valaura Imus-Nahsonhoya, Agnes Woodward

Every time a person goes missing, it's a tragedy. But statistics are only part of the picture. In times of crisis, we come together as a community to protect one another, honor those we've lost, and gather strength to keep moving.

For our keynote event, join acclaimed poet Layli Long Soldier for Bring Them Home: An Evening Dedicated to Missing and Murdered Indigenous People on Friday, March 26, 2021 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Phoenix MST on Zoom. At this event, Long Soldier will share new work created in response to issues surrounding missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG). Long Soldier will also be joined by Patti Hibbeler of the Phoenix Indian Center and consultant Valaura Imus-Nahsonhoya for a larger conversation and Q&A honoring our missing community.

This event is presented in partnership with the Phoenix Indian Center and The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Humanities Division at Arizona State University, will be live-streamed and recorded, and is open to the public and free.
