Susan Deer Cloud

Susan Deer Cloud, a long-haired Catskill Indian (Mohawk/Blackfoot), is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships. Her most recent books are Hunger Moon and Fox Mountain.

Susan's life is dedicated to her creative work, editing and getting out the voices of sister and brother writers (especially Indigenous writers), mentoring younger poets, teaching, and sharing her stories and poetry with others.

The guiding symbol for her life is the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Sky Woman Creation Story and the Iroquois Confederacy’s Tree of Peace. For this reason whatever she says and does takes into account the next seven generations.
