Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings
Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings
Joy Harjo

More than a book. More than poetry. These are the words.—Recommended by Ryan

A musical, magical, resilient volume from one of our most celebrated and essential Native American voices.

In these poems, the joys and struggles of the everyday are played against the grinding politics of being human. Beginning in a hotel room in the dark of a distant city, we travel through history and follow the memory of the Trail of Tears from the bend in the Tallapoosa River to a place 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. Called a "magician and a master" (San Francisco Chronicle), Joy Harjo is at the top of her form in Conflict Resolution for Holy Beings.
