Students shape words into CONCRETE POEMS
IMAGES MADE IN TRIBAL LANGUAGE

BISMARCK (UTN) - These concrete poems were created by students in my spring 2009 Native American Literature course. In a concrete poem, the writer shapes the words of the poem to represent the meaning of the poem. To emphasize diversity, the students were required to research a Native American language that is not their own. They reached out to fellow students and staff people or explored internet sources or books in the UTTC library.
