Under the Volcano is delighted to present a conversation between alumna writer CMarie Fuhrman and UTV Director Magda Bogin to celebrate the publication of Native Voices: Indigenous American Craft, Poetry and Conversations (Tupelo Press, April 1, 2019), which The Literary Review calls “ a brilliant and necessary anthology.”
Co-edited by CMarie Fuhrman and Dean Rader, the book presents a diverse collection of stories told by Indigenous writers about themselves, their histories, and their present. It is a celebration of culture and the possibilities of language, in conversation with those poets and storytellers who have paved the way.
CMarie Fuhrman is the author of Camped Beneath the Dam: Poems (Floodgate 2020) and co-editor of Native Voices (Tupelo 2019). She has published poetry and nonfiction in multiple journals and anthologies. An Indigenous daughter of the Rocky Mountains, she is passionate about the wild and sacred and concentrates her writing on protecting cultural heritage, preserving open places and remembering Native peoples. CMarie is the 2019 recipient of the Grace Paley Fellowship at Under the Volcano and will return to UTV in 2020. CMarie resides in the mountains of West Central Idaho.
