WordSpace presents Natalie Diaz International Impressions
Natalie Diaz’s debut book of poetry, When My Brother Was an Aztec, was a 2012 Lannan Literary Selection, a 2013 PEN/Open Book Award shortlist, and “portrays experiences rooted in Native American life with personal and mythic power.” Diaz currently lives in Mohave Valley, Arizona where she used to work on language revitalization at Fort Mojave, her home reservation. She worked with the last Elder speakers of the Mojave language. Her work appeared in Narrative, Poetry Magazine, Drunken Boat, Prairie Schooner, Iowa Review and Crab Orchard Review and Poetry Foundation. She now teaches at Arizona State University.
