       twenty-eight-year career, beginning in 1973 in the age 
       marked by the takeover at Wounded Knee and the 
       rejuvenation of indigenous cultures in the world through 
       poetry and music. How We Became Human explores its title 
       question in poems of sustaining grace."--Publisher
