From Manabí people, aboriginal of Abya Yala, I use they/she pronouns. I pay deepest respect to the past-present-future Lənape Haki-nk people and elders and ancestors, on whose land I was born and have settled. I acknowledge and offer deep gratitude to Lenapehoking and water, which nourishes my well-being daily.
“Our primary act of agency and resistance against violence is to love – to love ourselves rightly and to love other people rightly” (hooks, 2015).
Learning through w@ndering or wondering thru wanderings or wandering thru wonderings, I study and engage within artivist movements on contested spaces to uncover more and seed the future with knowledges and ways of being towards Black liberation and Indigenous sovereignty. Conscious efforts to embody solidarity in collaboration with grassroots action to nourish and nurture the thriving of Black and Indigenous youth and create with them artivist wellness spaces carries me each day.
