When Lara lifts John Trudell’s voice she lifts her own. “We’re not taught about our personal relationship to power. We’re not taught about our relationship to the Great Spirit. Recognizing power is what you have to do. When you recognize it, you exercise it. You can’t take back what they have already taken but you can stop the taking of your power, once you recognize it.” She lifts her own voice as she investigates the absence of Indian history, the erasure of Indian lives, the loss of Indian identity in many ways including adoption.
Lara lifts mostly directly through her poetry in “Masks” and “I Shook” and “When a trickle… becomes a river.. then a flood” and “I Wasn’t Ready For Her To Die” and most powerfully in “Ghost Shell.” It’s hard to leave the impact of her words behind.
She writes, “a good poet would never let a good catastrophe go to waste.” She shares the Hopi prophecy, “Now is the time, we are the ones we have been waiting for.” In all her powerful, hip-hop-like words, her closing statements resonate. In them Lara writes,
“All our suffering is mutual.
All our healing is mutual.
All our thriving is mutual.”
