WITH HINEMOANA BAKER, DANIELA CATRILEO, BILLY-RAY BELCOURT, NATALIE DIAZ, PERGENTINO JOSÉ
The special’s Poetry Night will open up a space, albeit a selective one, for a polyphony of Indigenous literatures. Moderated by Karolina Golimowska, the evening will bring the authors Hinemoana Baker, Daniela Catrileo, Billy-Ray Belcourt, Natalie Diaz, Pergentino José together in dialogue and juxtapose their lyrical interventions into the present.

The event is part of the programme special Echo. Echo. Indigenous Voices at internationales literaturfestival berlin 2021. The series is a cooperation between the Cluster of Excellence "Temporal Communities" and the ilb.
