Ella Jaz Kirk (1999-2014) was a talented writer, musician, and lover of wild places, as well as a vocal activist for keeping the Gila River in New Mexico flowing free.
“I was meant to help the planet. That’s what I was put on Earth to do. I was made a writer by God or someone to help the planet. I don’t know how yet but somehow, through my writing it will be done.”
