Happy Birthday to Zitkála-Šá, also known as Gertrude Simmons Bonnin (Yankton Sioux) was a dedicated activist for #NativeAmerican rights. A gifted writer, she was an outspoken critic of Indian boarding schools, having experienced as both student and teacher their policy of forced assimilation.

In 1926, Zitkála-Šá founded the National Council of American Indians, a pan-Indian organization dedicated to social and political reforms.

Her birthday was actually the 22nd; I had this scheduled to post but overlooked it. She should not be forgotten.



I'm sorry I miss this
Thank you for a beautiful post

US Poet Laureate Joy Harjo’s Latest Album Arrives as a Witness to the Emotional Undertow of the Moment

At a time when poetry has been an unexpected solace, Harjo sets her verses to a soundscape influenced by jazz, funk, and Mvskoke tradition.

Read and listen to poet, musician, artist, and memoirist Joy Harjo and inevitably you too will start to picture words and songs physically tracing the roads and waterways of the country, over time. It seems a natural way for America to be seen by the 23rd Poet Laureate of the United States, particularly for one who is indigenous to its lands. Harjo, a member of the Mvskoke (Creek) Nation, is the first Native American writer to hold the position, and only the second laureate to see her appointment extended to a third term.
