I am a Portland-based transdisciplinary warrior born to the
clans Tódích'íí'nii (Bitter Water) and Naasht'ézhí Tábąąhá (Zuni Clan Water's
Edge) of the Diné (Navajo). Whether I am broaching topics adjacent to
Decolonization, Survivance, and Queerness in written and visual language, I am
caught in a narrative that is informed by romanticized notions of belonging and
the alienation experienced through centuries of forced assimilation to White
Supremacist Capitalist Patriarchy.
My work as an artist can be understood through the lens of
curatorial inquiry, zine production, street interventions, education,
workshops, and transdisciplinary methods of art production. My work is rooted
in radical indigenous queer feminist politics, landscape representation, memory
formation, Indigenous Survivance, HIV/AIDS-related art and activism, gender,
identity, and sexuality.
