Reading by Cliff Taylor

“Cliff Taylor’s poems call us into the sacred space he inhabits as a human, a descendant of Chief Standing Bear, a seeker, and, at his heart, a storyteller. His poetic landscape is equal parts Wounded Knee and Scooby Doo, genocide and rebirth, grief for the lost, yet a reclaiming — both playful and fierce — of what remains. His voice is a landmark worthy of pilgrimage in the sacred geography of Indigenous storytelling, each stanza granting the reader a healing dose of ‘the medicine of remembering,’ to quote the poet himself.”
-Suzanne Ohlmann, author of Shadow Migration: Mapping a Life
