About Raymond Moose Jackson
Mr. Jackson is a Detroit native and ex-military who found his way to New Orleans via squatting, direct activism and train-hopping. His poetry is rooted in ancient traditions and re-connects community to their sacred relationship with place. His environmental play LOUP GAROU won the Big Easy award for Best Original Work of 2009. His works, including CRY YOU ONE (2013-2018) have toured domestically and abroad at the cutting edge of ritual, poetic theater and activism. In 2008 he founded New Orleans’ only water-based and ecology-themed carnival parade crewe, with over 90 boats and hundreds of land participants engaging in ritual, repast and revelry each Mardi Gras. He performs regularly with New Orleans’ experimental jazz community as an improv poet while maintaining a full-time job as a licensed tour guide and mule-carriage driver in the French Quarter. Publications include: Loup Garou (Lavender Ink), and A Howling in the Wires (Gallatin Press).
