The Chi-noodin Community Writers Group Returns!

The first publication of the Chi-noodin Community Writers Group "We Write for Ourselves" is now available!

The Chi-noodin Community Writers Group returns for its FOURTH SESSION on Friday, February 10, 2012. In partnership with the Kateri Center of Chicago and the UIC Community Writing Project, the Chi-noodin Writers Group is made up of local Native American community members in an effort to tell our stories of living in the city using our own words and our own voices.

We invite members of the Native Community of Chicago to join us!

Where: The Kateri Center, 3938 North Leavitt
When: Fridays, beginning February 10th through April!

No prior writing or publication experience is necessary. Come write about your experiences in a sharing and open environment. Snacks and writing materials provided. Quality and friendly feedback and support is a constant. Join us as we work towards our second publication in the summer of 2012!

For more information or to sign up contact Cultural Resource Specialist Ernest M. Whiteman III at 773.534.2417 or email

We hope to see you there!

  1. Greetings, this is wonderful! How can we buy a copy of the group’s chapbook?
    I facilitate creative writing workshops in my community and would love to have a copy to share
    with other group members. Tlazo, and my best wishes for your continued success in writing! Odilia Galván Rodríguez


    • Hi! We’re currently out of the first issue, but we’ll be printing more soon in addition to the second issue. Keep checking back, as we will most likely be sharing some of the stories here on the blog.


    • Hi, there! The first issue had already been printed and we are out of copies right now. We expect to have more printed in addition to the second issue. Our group is still working on a new schedule to meet so stay tuned for more stories. Hopefully, with permission from our writers, we’ll be able to share their stories here on the blog.
