I make music to communally discuss and transmute trauma. These songs are about communicating trauma and discussing violence. While listening, please remember you are loved and you are worthy. I feel you, and there are so many of us who do. Together we will create liberation.

Tonalli was written in a tent I shared while I lived at Oceti Sakowin. Safehouse was written in one as I healed from bronchitis in one, a month into my time at Oceti. Asking Us to Die was written while writing my dissertation on creating research relationships with urban Indigenous gang affiliated youth. No Peace was written in place of a lecture on police brutality I was meant to give the week Michael Brown was murdered. In Red Women I sing about mixed ancestry, ancestral erasure, & violence against coded femmes. Voice is about how violence is an option.
