The joan kane. Npr: Native American students make up only 1.1 percent of the nation’s high school population.
And in college, the number is even smaller. More than any other ethnic or racial group, they’re the least likely to have access to college prep or advanced placement courses. Many get little or no college counseling at all. In 1998, College Horizons, a small nonprofit based in New Mexico, set out to change that through five-day summer workshops on admissions, financial aid and the unique challenges they’ll face on campus.

If you google ‘Joan Naviyuk Kane’, among the first pictures that come up is a selfie (see image, below right.) The picture seems to date back to 2010, but it is an appropriate depiction of the approach Ms Kane, a poet, has taken in Milk Black Carbon, her fourth published collection, released in February. According to the publisher’s description, the poems take up a range of personal topics, including “motherhood, marriage, extended family and its geographical context in the rapidly changing Arctic”.
SEE RELATED: Born to be Greenlandic Ms Kane hesitates on the question about whether this means the poems are autobiographical, but then settles on an explanation: they contain autobiographical details, but they are about more than just her.

Ugiuvaŋmiuguruŋa/I am from King Island by Joan Kane - Literature. My family comes from King Island (Ugiuviak), Alaska, a remote island in the Bering Sea that has been uninhabited since the Bureau of Indian Affairs forcibly relocated our people off the island in 1959 under pressure from the federal government’s policy of assimilating Native Americans.
Like many King Islanders in my generation, I have never been to my ancestral home. My mother last returned in 1974, before my birth. I am seeking funding in order to research, undertake, and document a trip to the King Island while my mother and her remaining siblings-- as well as others who were born and raised on the island-- are still alive, interested, and capable of making the trip together to ensure that King Islanders remain connected to our ancestors, culture, and place of origin. I will generate a book of poems and reflect my experiences in my novel-in-progress, as well as publish non-fiction accounts of the process online. Getting to King Island is difficult.
