U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo reads and performs her poetry, which she describes as “carriers of dreams, knowledge and wisdom,” telling an American story of tradition and loss, reckoning and myth-making.

She is a member of the Mvskoke/Creek Nation and the first Native American poet to hold the position of U.S. Poet Laureate. Her most recent collection of poetry is An American Sunrise.
