Reviews

"This play clearly illuminates the collective grief, disconnection and suffering many indigenous people experience because of the brutalities of colonization. But more importantly, Joy's voice gives us strength, by reconnecting us to our ancestors, to our guardian spirits, and to each other.--Victoria Nalani Kneuhbuhl, Pacific Island Author and Playwright
Through the lens of Joy Harjo's mandate 'to follow the mystery' and the 'liminal backroads' of art practice, we arrive at the terror and wonder of the theatrical moment as a site of healing for all of us.--CherrΓ­e Moraga, Playwright, The Mathematics of Love
Joy Harjo is a masterful and remarkable Native artist. She is known as a writer across genres including poetry, essays, and picture books. She is a musician with a lyrical voice holding a saxophone between her tattooed fingers. And she is a national treasure--Loriene Roy, Professor, School of Information, University of Texas at Austin
Harjo's play follows an ancient path, that of tribal creation, healing pain, loss, love, and ultimately helps us remember we will survive. Wings of Night Sky, Wings of Morning Light: A Play by Joy Harjo and a Circle of Responses is destined to become a classic."--LeAnne Howe, Edison Distinguished Professor in American Literature, University of Georgia
