Native Voices Poetry Festival

Since 2015 Native Voices Poetry Festival has celebrated the human voice in all the arts, and explored the richness of Southern California Native American cultures, histories, languages, and traditional arts, inspiring a deeper understanding of the region and its beauty, vitality, and uniqueness. I began the Native Voices Poetry Festival in 2015 with poet Juan Delgado, former Inlandia Poet Laureate (Inlandia Institute) and now-retired California State University, San Bernardino, professor. Since then we have co-chaired the ever-growing regional festival hosted by the nonprofit Dorothy Ramon Learning Center. The Festival draws in academic, tribal, literary, and community support and partners from throughout the region. We promote culture, community, literacy, creativity, education, volunteerism among youth, the arts, and much more.  Thanks to many donations and much volunteerism and support, the Festival is FREE. The Festival includes: Performances: Works presented in our Gathering Hall
