  • Description


    I am a young, white queer living on Anishinaabe land south of Lake Superior. I value learning about and building relationships with the land, water, and all the beings we share an ecosystem with through foraging, wildlife tracking, gardening etc.. I am trying to build an intentional living community to connect queer, Black, Indigenous and POC to the land and land based skills in reciprocity and rematriation.
