“Politics Matters” will show Part 1 of “Standing on Native Ground” with poet and anthropologist Karenne Wood, director of Virginia Indian Programs at the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, again at 11:30 a.m. Sunday on public television station WVPT.

The two-part series dives into the history of the Monacan Nation in Virginia, the impact of legislation and judicial decisions on Native Americans across the country and the role of the Native American artist and poet in taking a new look at the narrative of American history.

Wood has an MFA in creative writing from George Mason University and is a doctoral candidate and Ford Fellow in anthropology at the University of Virginia. She wrote “Markings on Earth,” which won the North American Native Authors’ Award for Poetry in 2000. She has recently completed a second book of poems, “Weaving the Boundary.”

“Politics Matters,” hosted by Jan Paynter, focuses on Charlottesville politics, as well as on citizen awareness of and participation in government on local, state and national levels. To learn more about the program, visit www.politicsmatters.org.
