Featuring Janet Rogers(Mohawk/Tuscarora), Gary Gottfriedson(Secwepemc) and Savage Fam (S’Klallam Nation, Coast Salish) . Hosted by by kîwetinohk kîsik (trish pal) and Ruby Smith Díaz.

Janet Rogers is a Mohawk author, spoken word and media poet. She is from the Six Nations territory now living on traditional Lekwungen territory for the past 18 years. Janet hosts the Native Waves Radio show on CFUV 101.9fm on Tuesdays and Tribal Clefs music column on CBC Radio One in Victoria. She is Victoria’s current poet laureate and has three books and 2 CDs of poetry.

Gary Gottfriedson grew up in a rodeo/ranching family within the Secwepemc Nation. He has published extensively, nationally and internationally, and currently has 7 books out.

Savage Fam represents the voice of our people, a people who have been ignored and unheard for years. The truth of our beauty, of our significance as Indigenous peoples to the world, has endured and will endure as long as our spirit exists, connected to all that is sacred.

Poetry As Praxis is the spoken word night of the Victoria Anarchist Bookfair and is part of the Festival Of Anarchy
