@Noon: Billy-Ray Belcourt

A black and white photo of a man in a knit hat and black tank top standing outside a row of white tents and looking off to the side.

Indigenous Canadian poet Billy-Ray Belcourt reads from his award-winning debut work, This Wound Is a World, and his forthcoming work, NDN Coping Mechanisms: Notes from the Field. A member of the Driftpile Cree Nation, Belcourt grapples with the political demands of queerness, mainstream portrayals of Indigenous life, love and its discontents, and the limits and uses of poetry as a vehicle for Indigenous liberation.

Presented in partnership with the Scripps College Humanities Institute
