Theopoetic Folds

Theopoetics begins in poetry and ends in theology. It is a mode of theological analysis that enables critical evaluation and overcoming of the limits of mono-linear thought toward more robust understandings of lived multiplicity. This chapter follows Gerald Vizenor's suggestive concepts of “native modernity” and “ontic significance” to highlight both the limits of monotheistic presuppositions of linearity and illuminate indigenous logics that make sense of creation as incarnation. In doing so it explores the pros and poetry of Joy Hajro as an example of narratives that disrupt linear and absolute logic.

Keywords:   Joy Hajro, Ontology, Poetry, Multiplicity, Gerald Vizenor, Indigenous religion
