Spoken word is a way to express feelings, ideas, thoughts and visions through song and poetry. Far too often, Indian languages lack venues where we as Native people are able to use our Native languages to express our stories and experiences.


AICLS, in partnership with News from Native California and Heyday, would like to invite you to an evening of stories, poetry, and song shared in languages indigenous to California. It will truly be a special evening. A night of the oldest languages of this land being spoken and sung in a modern setting, a shining testament to our ongoing presence, as we speak and sing of issues dear to our hearts.


For more information, please feel free to contact AICLS, or News from Native California through Facebook, or personally contact Vincent, a member of AICLS' Board of Directors at
