One River, A Thousand Voices


One River, a Thousand Voices by Claudia Castro Luna celebrates the Columbia River’s energy, beauty and power. It honors the resilience of Native peoples who for millennia have lived along its banks and at this historical juncture with climate change, it is a call to consider our personal role as stewards of the natural world.

Castro Luna's poem is presented as an accordion book, the words cascading down the pages alongside a blue-ink stream evoking the powerful Columbia.

Castro Luna is the current Washington state poet laureate.
