Laura Da’ pops-up with poetry from the anthology New Poets of Native Nations

Da’ is paired with Stands Towards the Sun by Wendy Red Star; found in the Native American Art on the 2nd floor of the Portland Art Museum. Please reference the Portland Art Museum Map to find this location.


New Poets of Native Nations gathers poets of diverse ages, styles, languages, and tribal affiliations to present the extraordinary range and power of new Native poetry. Editor Heid E. Erdrich has selected twenty-one poets whose first books were published after the year 2000 to highlight the exciting works of contemporary poets. Collected here are poems of great breadth—long narratives, political outcries, experimental works, and traditional lyrics—and the result is an essential anthology of some of the best poets writing now.
