Missed Education Book Club: Reading Poet Warrior By Joy Harjo
Our Missed Education book club is all about sifting through the fragments of history deemed worthy to be taught in required history classes & rediscovering a history that was missed (intentionally) & skewed, but was always there, the history of the systemically marginalized.
We read one book each month and meet monthly at Palabras to discuss it.

In celebration of poetry month and to learn more about the lives and histories of BIPOC poets that have historically been excluded from the literary canon, we have decided to read a memior by the current and the first indigenous United states poet laureate, Joy Harjo. This is her second memior and it is titled, Poet Warrior: 

"Weaving together the voices that shaped her, Harjo listens to stories of ancestors and family, the poetry and music that she first encountered as a child, the teachings of a changing earth, and the poets who paved her way. She explores her grief at the loss of her mother and sheds light on the rituals that nourish her as an artist, mother, wife, and community member. Moving fluidly among prose, song, and poetry, Poet Warrior is a luminous journey of becoming that sings with all the jazz, blues, tenderness, and bravery that we know as distinctly Joy Harjo."
