Coyote’s Song

Collected Poems and Selected Art of Carlos Cortez Koyokuikatl

Carlos Cortez, Koyokuikatl (1923-2005) has left a magnificent legacy of political poetry along with visual images using scratchboard, linocut and block prints. But he also left us the example, captured in this book, of tireless activism, including his poetry and art, all directed toward a new society. That lifetime venture, in his words, was to contribute to “a society that is more egalitarian, more loving of each other, more recognizing of the worth in each of us.” This book contains his poems, visual art, and commentaries on his life’s work by some of those closest to him.
