"Voices of Color for Mother Earth" Indigenous Poetry Festival
The world’s first Indigenous poetry festival launches in Mexico Monday, bringing together 80 poets from five continents and 30 languages to celebrate Indigenous knowledge and love for the Mother Earth.
The inaugural theme, "Voices of Color for Mother Earth," aims to share different Indigenous cosmologies on the natural world to "keep alive their traditions, their language, but above all their creativity and vision of the world that will surely be increasingly present in the enormous changes the world is experiencing,” said National Council for Culture and the Arts President Rafael Tovar.
The festival began on Monday of this week, Oct 17, and will continue until the end of the week. Poets from six Mexican states are joining the inaugural festival which will also hold workshops along with poetry readings.
