"Look behind you. See your sons and your daughters. They are your future. Look farther, and see your sons’ and your daughters’ children, and their children's  children, even unto the Seventh Generation. That’s the way we were taught." 
—Leon Shenandoah (1915-1996) Leader of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy

River, Blood, And Corn: A Community of Voices

We invite you to take your time reading our stories. "Time is not linear," Lakota author Amy Kraut-Horn explains, “I feel that time is the acknowledgment, the awareness of transition, transformation, and change, existing as continuous motion, unending movement, flowing around us, through us, connecting everything in a spiraling dance within another dance within another dance.” 

The majority of our contributors are Indigenous yet a variety of writers, ethnicities, age groups, backgrounds, communities, themes and view points are presented here. 

Thank you to our contributors and our readers. 

We thank you for your voice continually widening the circle.
