Becky, I'd love to hear a little bit about how you went about your language learning, and I'd love to hear about if concepts, sounds, or meanings in Mohegan gave rise to certain poems.
Jackie Balderrama
01:23:03
Rebecca P., I’m curious about your process with poetry and image. Were those created together or did one come first? Also books of poems with images are just so thrilling to me. (same question in Q&A so you can ignore it there).
Beverly Army Williams (she/her)
01:23:38
Here’s a question from Tyler Hutchinson: Dr. Pelky, could you mention a few of the places that mean the most to you, those that are part of your soul?
