Description

In this audiovisual recording from Thursday, March 25, 2021, as part of the 52nd Annual UND Writers Conference: “Roots of the Earth,” Joy Harjo shares her work. Harjo reads “For Calling the Spirit Back from Wandering the Earth in Its Human Feet,” “Perhaps the World Ends Here,” “My House is the Red Earth,” “If You Look with the Mind of the Swirling Earth,” “Don’t Bother the Earth Spirit,” “Spirit Walking in the Tundra,” “Eagle Poem,” “This Morning I Pray for My Enemies,” “Honoring,” Elise Paschen’s “Wi’-gi-e,” “My Man’s Feet,” and “Remember.” Harjo also plays a recording of the song “Why Is Beauty” from her upcoming album I Pray for My Enemies. Harjo responds to audience questions about advice for older poets, the joys and heartaches of being a poet, how she keeps her word choice fresh, how could a student encourage a professor to include contemporary pieces in the study of Indigenous writing, who influences her, recommendations for aspiring poets to read, and where to start reading in Harjo’s body of work.

Introduced by Dr. Melanie Nadeau, School of Medicine & Health Sciences.
