About R. Vincent Moniz, Jr.
An enrolled member of the Mandan Hidatsa Arikara Nation of Fort Berthold North Dakota, R. Vincent Moniz Jr. (NuEta) is an emerging voice hailing from the Philips neighborhood of south Minneapolis. Vincent has been a part of the Twin Cities artistic community for over two decades as an actor, but has only shared his poetry a handful of times. Most recently he performed as part of Equilibrium: Spoken Word at the Loft and will be performing throughout the cities. City Pages says Moniz "blends humor with social commentary", so don't miss a chance to see this poet blend and bend this unique style of poetry.
