My first full-length book, Thunder Thighs & Trickster Vibes, is set to publish in November 2020!
This book aims to rehome "traditional" Indigenous relationships into a modern framework, with a roadmap to radical love through pre-wave and intersectional feminist theories. Moving from survivance to thrivance is possible when fortified with ancestral knowledge, modern community-building, and the will of the next generations. This book discusses how traditional views of relationships were lost, what must happen to revive them today, and how to ceremonially engage others for future generations. Read more here.
Read my essay, "Origins," featuring Ptesáŋwiŋ (White Buffalo Calf Woman) in this brand new anthology.
From Lisa Peet, News and Reviews Editor, Library Journal; Senior Writer, Bloom: "Thirteen essays spotlight history’s heroines who have slipped under the radar, ranging from the legendary Lakota White Buffalo Calf Woman to pioneering black nightclub owner Ada 'Bricktop' Smith to cross-dressing Revolutionary War soldier Deborah Sampson, offering a glimpse into often-forgotten lives that have potent resonance for today’s activists, rebels, teachers, and dreamers. And their authors’ own interwoven stories offer an affirmation, at a time we need it most, that the boundaries between the personal and the political are always porous. FIERCE is indeed fierce, bursting with erudition, scholarship, and passion."
