Trevino L. Brings Plenty, Joel Waters, Steve Pacheco, Luke Warm Water

These poets are bound by a common attitude as well as a common heritage. All four — Joel Waters, Steve Pacheco, Kurt Schweigman (who writes under the name Luke Warm Water), and Trevino L. Brings Plenty — are Sioux, and all four identify themselves as "Skins" (as in "Redskins"). In their poems, they grapple with their heritage, wrestling with what it means to be a Sioux and a Skin today. It's a fight to the finish.
