On Monday, September 21st at 2 pm EST, join the magical, resilient, and acclaimed U.S.A Poet Laureate Joy Harjo in conversation with Red Sky Artistic Director Sandra Laronde on her life as the nation’s poet laureate, her thoughts on narrative sovereignty and the recent Supreme Court ruling recognizing the lands of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation which is hailed as a historic win for tribes and their long struggle for sovereignty.
In 2019, Joy Harjo was appointed the 23rd United States Poet Laureate, the first Native American to hold this distinction. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Harjo is an internationally respected and award-winning poet, writer, performer, and saxophone player of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation. She is the author of nine books of poetry and a memoir.
