Storm downed cedar carved out to form a canoe, pushed along downstream
upon the current of the river, the native American Indian called,
Striped Water, "where the waters come together."
Today that river is called, The Stuck, or Stuck River, up stream the White River.

Background

Striped Water Poets began as the Living Room of the Spoken Word Lab. The Living Room began in 1994 with the Spoken Word Lab founded by Paul Nelson and Danika Dinsmore, in 1996.  The Living Room was often simply referred to as SPLAB.
SPLAB had been the sponsor of the long running Super-Bowl of Poetry which usually was on Super Bowl Sunday. In June of 2006 SPLAB became a new entity with a new name, Striped Water Poets. Striped Water Poets is under the direction of Gerald McBreen.

 
 

~~~~~ Auburn ~~~~~

Auburn, hometown of Striped Water Poets, was originally incorporated as Slaughter in 1891 in honor of General W. A. Slaughter. With a slaughter house in town the name quickly took on double meanings. In 1893 the name was changed to Auburn, taken from "Sweet Auburn, loveliest village of the plain," of the poem, "Deserted Village" by Oliver Goldsmith.
