Joy Harjo

b. 1951
Joy Harjo

Like other Native American poets such as N. Scott Momaday, Simon Ortiz and Leslie Marmon Silko, Joy Harjo writes in an effort to re-establish lost connections: with the sacred land, with powerful ancestors, and with fellow searchers along the margins of contemporary life. She also plays in a band called Poetic Justice.
