"...Be nobody's darling;
Be an outcast.
Qualified to live
Among your dead."

--ᎠᎵᏍ ᎡᏙᎯ Alice Walker (African/ᏣᎳᎩ/Irish)

I'm ᎡᏆ ᏣᎳᎩ ᎠᎨᏳᏍᏗ ᎤᏓᎾᏘ weirdo nerdo, also of African, Irish, Lenape, Lumbee, and Osage ascent. I'm currently in the process of (re)learning ᏣᎳᎩ, ᎠᎴ so I'm gradually translating ᎯᎠ profile. I'm an activist, ᏗᎪᏪᎵᏍᎩ ᎧᏃᎮᏢᏍᎩ, ᎠᎴ have a PhD from Michigan State University in Rhetoric and Writing and ᏗᎪᏪᎵᏍᎩ of Walking with Ghosts: Poems. I am currently an assistant professor of Queer Studies in the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Oregon State University.

I'm passionate about healing ᎠᎴ revolution. I love to knit, fingerweave, ᎠᎴ weave baskets ᎠᎴ am learning to do ᎠᏕᎳwork. When I wear my tight bluejeans and cowboy boots, ᎠᎴ am having a high pain ᎢᎦ so I have to lean ᏍᏔᏯ into my ᎤᏙᎸᏅᏍᏘ ᎠᎴ walk real ᎤᏍᎦᏃᎵ, I feel ᎠᏍᎦᏯᎤᏍᏗ ᎠᎴ stoic.

About my libraryThese ᏗᎪᏪᎵ from the library of a ᎡᏆ ᏣᎳᎩ ᎠᎨᏳᏍᏗ ᎤᏓᎾᏘ ᎠᏎᎩ nerdo. My addiction to Library Thing has taken a sudden ᎠᎴ startling turn as I began cataloging literary journals, academic journals, magazines, and newsletters that are part of my collection.
