Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings

by Joy Harjo


A powerful and captivating volume by one of the most acclaimed Native American authors, filled with musical and magical showcases of enduring strength and resilience.

From the poet laureate of the United States, Joy Harjo, comes this profound collection of poems, Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings. Wherein, the happiness and pain of the everyday is positioned against the grinding politics of being human. From the darkness of a hotel room in a distant city, we embark on a journey through time, tracing the echoes of the Trail of Tears from the bend in the Tallapoosa River to a location near the Arkansas River. Stomp dance songs, blues and jazz ballads echo throughout. Lost ancestors are recalled. Resilient songs are born, even as they grieve the loss of their country.
