My commitment to creative praxis and interdisciplinary research ceremony

is rooted in the deep intersection of arts-based

and Indigenous methodologies and epistemologies,

social justice, poetic imagination, phenomenology, depth and liberation psychologies.


My current research centers on the re-indigenization

and re-matriation of Indigenous birth and mothering practices

through community land-based performative ceremonial activism.

I write poetry & creative non-fiction, make images & films,

and strive to re-member "art" creation

with its power in enacting ceremonial world vision.

a little about my work . . .

I am smoke
now I listen to your breath in my breath,
uncle, father, stranger
tobacco cured and rolled
inexpertly, but humbly enough
for ancestors to speak
smoke has wings and lips and tongue
to share rescued words
making assertions / sentences from nowhere to
my throat breath speak
