My work is situated in the intersectional spaces of Indigenous performance, youth and diaspora, hip hop culture- specifically Indigenous hip hop feminism, and Indigenous new media. I am particularly interested in new Indigeneities produced in urban hub spaces as they shape solidarity movements and social activism. My forthcoming book ‘We survived we crow-walked an we learned to fly’: Hip hop as contemporary urban Indigenous thought’ explores Indigenous hip hop culture’s activism and socio/cultural critique, offering alter Indigeneities and manifesting Indigenous futurity.
