Poet Joy Harjo is a treasure

I loved how she says the scientists are becoming more like Native Peoples by recognizing what's happening around us.

Unfortunately a money grab

I love Joy Harjo. Unfortunately this is a 2 minute poem that is on her audio “Conflict Resolution”. If you have that audio, don’t bother purchasing this . I felt like this was a money grab.
