Marquettte – An anthology of creative works representing the contemporary American Indian Experience will be released in early December. It is titled Voice on the Water: Great Lakes Native America Now. There will be a public reading on Wednesday November 30 at NMU. Contributors to this project will also be showcased at this reading at 105 Jamrich Hall, free admission.
Voice on the Water features, poetry, short stories, essays, pictures, and artwork. It also includes a glossary of Anishinaabe terms and contributor biographies. NMU’s Center for Native American Studies and the NMU Press collaborated on the anthology, made possible by a $15,000 grant from the Michigan Humanities Council.
More than 200 pieces were submitted for consideration from within the state and beyond. A committee of campus scholars, along with a community elder and author, selected the 88 that are included in this book.
Voice on the Water will be available at the NMU Bookstore.
