      [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="448"] courtesy Poetry Foundation[/caption] Chrystos [1] is a Native American of the Menominee nation, born in 1946 and raised in San Francisco. A political activist and speaker as well as an artist and writer, she is self educated. Her tireless momentum is directed at better understanding how issues of colonialism, genocide, class and gender affect the lives of women and Native people. Her books include Fugitive Colors, Not Vanishing, Dream On, Fire Power and In Her I Am. In 1995, Queer in Your Ear (Emily Charles & Mary Salome) interviewed Chrystos about her activism and poetry, and recorded her reading at two venues in San Francisco, Luna Sea and Old Wives’ Tales. The monthly program Queer in Your Ear was cancelled before the program could air. Chrystos’ words continue to inspire us. Women’s Magazine is very happy to bring excerpts from the readings and interview to you for the first time now, decades later. Produced by Mary Salome and Emily Charles.
