Cover to Cover Open Book - November 11, 2005

Three writers and teachers talk about how their tribal traditions influence their work. Ofelia Zepeda, winner of a 1999 MacArthur Fellowship, shares the poetry that she writes both in English and her tribal language, O'odham. Robert Warrior takes us back to the nineteenth century for a look at the written 1881 constitution of the Osage nation and the oral version of the nation's origins. And Jean Breinig reads and talks about writings from her tribe, the Haida, in Alaska. Produced by “What's The Word.”
