M. Miriam Herrera is an American author and poet. Her poetry often explores Mexican American or Chicano life and her Crypto-Jewish and Native American (Cherokee ) heritage, but mainly the universal themes of nature, family, myth, and the transcendent experience. Herrera was born to natives of the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas in Sutherland, Nebraska, where her parents had been working in the sugar-beet fields. She was raised in Aurora, Illinois, where her parents moved to escape a migratory life of farm work.
