From presumbably Linda Hogan[edit]

originally posted to article body: moved here by NottNott@Nicefroman: Hogan, Linda. Personal interview. 14 May 2016 at 8:10 AM Dear

    Connor,  
    Thank you for making this Wikipedia a more full site. 
      
    I will try to answer all of these. I looked at the page and it keeps changing. I'd like to add 
    a new photograph and can send you one if you can do this. Also, here is my website for more 
    information: www.lindahoganwriter.com. I have two new books out, plus two awards. The new 
    awards are the Native Arts and Culture Fellowship, and the PEN Thoreau Prize. 
    Newest book is Dark. Sweet. New and Selected Poems, 2015 
    Also, a book is available on my work from University of Colorado Press, as well as one 
    from Peter Huang called Linda Hogan and Aboriginal Taiwanese Poets (or something like that) In 
    addition, I have first chapters is a variety of other collections that are academic.   
    I am no longer a professor, but Chickasaw Author, and Professor Emerita, and  Editor. 
    Previously Writer in Residence for The Chickasaw Nation. 
    I was born in Denver, Colorado but considered my home to be Oklahoma. My family was 
    from Gene Autry, Oklahoma.  
    My mother was from a Germanic background. I do not know much about her, so I can't 
    give information on her history or family, except that she was from Nebraska originally. 
    I have a daughter, Tanya Thunderhorse, a sister/daughter Kathy Griffith (who is the 
    mother of my grandchildren and therefore my relative via their adoption) She adopted 
    two grandchildren of mine through another daughter I lost.  I have grandchildren: Danielle 
    Griffith, Cami Griffith, Michael Park, Michael Griffith, Jasmine Smith, and Angel Smith. My 
    great granddaughter, Jayla Rodriquez was tragically killed in 2014. She was the daughter of 
    Danielle. (I won't say much about our family because we are too complicated for a reader to 
    understand) 
    As for my childhood, most of the material is in the book Woman Who Watcher Over the 
    World, a book which took into depth the first half of my life, including some loss, adoptions, 
    a disabling accident and illness. It would be hard to explain what my childhood was like, but I 
    was influenced greatly by my Chickasaw family. My uncle, in particular, who made certain I 
    would have no difficulties with the indigenous half of my life. He took me to powwows, feasts, 
    and all the gatherings in the region from childhood until I had my own family. He was generous 
    with his time, kindness, and his certainty about who and what we were.  
    I was bonded to nature and the environment from childhood. We were outside most of the 
    time. Other than that, I loved art and painted until I began writing. Looking back so many 
    years, I can say that my school education was lacking in comparison to others and that school 
    was the most difficult thing for me. It wasn't ever expected that I would go on past high 
    school and little encouragement was present. Later, after working for low wages in nursing 
    homes, as a dental assistant, and other positions, I worked my own way through school, 
    beginning with adult education, then a two year school in Leadville, Colorado where I lived 
     (and where my brother now lives), and then continued on until I was finally in a graduate 
    program in Creative Writing, also studying Native and Indigenous Studies. I am, despite school, 
    largely a researcher of my own. I following my own interests, whether it be forestry, 
    entomology, animal studies, or pre Columbian history and archaeology. I am a serious learner 
    and writer.  
    When I discovered poetry, my life greatly changed. From working with handicapped 
    children and a degree in Psychology, I changed to Literature, eventually Creative Writing. 
    Poetry was my great love, a serious commitment, and while it never occurred to me that I might 
    earn a living from doing it, I knew it was my lifeway from that time on.  I do not have as much 
    time for poetry as I'd like because I also do environmental essays. I'm currently working on a 
    book on the experiences of living in a wildlife corridor, on forests and plants, and the 
    animals that appear where I live. But even the essays and fiction are a form of poetry. It is a 
    different kind of poetics for me. I do not think about it, about the academic words or 
    language. The writing comes from some deeper place than my mind and thoughts. I think of it as 
    ancestral language, or the genetic soul.  
    All of my novels are about environmental issues and true events that have been 
    fictionalized. I believe that story goes into a stronger form of activism than any other action 
    because it reaches across, bridges one human's  language to the emotions of others, so they can 
    see, or image, what is happening to the world. I have noticed that just telling, just giving 
    facts, or explaining situations, makes so little difference in how people see or what changes 
    they might make. But the story touches a person on the inside and changes the world in its own 
    way.  
    How is that for a beginning? Or perhaps all. It seems like maybe enough. 
    Thanks Connor, 
    Linda
