Bio | Statement II
IDENTITY I am mixed race; Chikasha, European, Mulatto. Obviously, I am more than a quick label. Cultural, ancestral identity is essential in standing tall amongst the world's muck sculpted in uncleansed hurt. My ancestors pulled me from the abyss. I attended the Institute of American Indian Arts. The experience challenged every aspect of my identity and the other, pushed me to an agonizing place of anger, incited me to fight against ignorance, and to no longer shy away from my voice. I do not attack others or want their voice to shrink. I want all our sounds echoing.
