Joy Harjo: Poet Warrior

In conversation with Rajiv Mohabir

Oct 7, 2021

We will be accompanied by ancient songs
And will celebrate together

In her new memoir, Poet Warrior, U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo recounts a luminous journey of becoming through stories of ancestors and family, the poetry and music that she first encountered as a child, and the messengers of a changing earth.

“Joy Harjo has always been able to see with more than her eyes. Her writing is a testament to this gift,” writes Sandra Cisneros. “Her memoir honors her own journey as well as those who fell along the wayside. Her hero’s journey is a gift for all those struggling to make their way.”
