Album Notes
Winding Through the Milky Way marks the culmination of an ongoing dream. Harjo found her songs first through poetry, and published seven award winning books of poetry, including How We Became Human, New and Selected Poems. She picked up a saxophone in the late 80’s and put together the band Joy Harjo and Poetic Justice. With the band she released her first CD Letter from the End of the Twentieth Century , now a classic. Two solo CD’s followed: Native Joy for Real, and She Had Some Horses. Among Harjo’s honors are the Eagle Spirit Achievement Award for overall contributions in the arts, the New Mexico Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers Circle of the Americas. She performs internationally solo and with her new band. She premiered a reading of her one-woman show (with original music), Wings of Night Sky, Wings of Morning Light at the Public Theater in NYC in 2007. She co-wrote the signature film of the National Museum of the American Indian, A Thousand Roads. Harjo writes a column “Comings and Goings” for her tribal newspaper, the Muscogee Nation News. She lives mostly in Honolulu, Hawai’i where she is a member of the Hui Nalu Canoe Club, and in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Buy 2, give on to a friend!
Wow. I love Joy's poetry, but wasn't sure about this CD, but decided to support the artist and gamble on the cd.

I LOVE this CD--Joy's poetry has a new layer to it with this music. I have bought a copy to give to a friend, and just ordered Native Joy for Real.

Since I bought this CD I wake up most mornings with "This Is My Heart" running through my head--as if I have been singing it in my sleep.

What a wonderful gift!
