Storytellers: Native American Authors Online
"This site was conceived with a very particular aim: to make the writing of modern Native American authors, particularly the poets, both more visible and more widely available. Toward that end, the sites residing on this server have been made with the collaboration of the authors. The authors see the sites before they are made public, edit these pages, contribute additional material, and select, or at least help to select, their work which is made available to be read online."
