Tawahum Justin Bige

Lutselk'e Dene and Plains Cree, Two-Spirit and Nonbinary poet, Tawahum Justin Bige resides on unceded Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish territory colonially-known-as Vancouver. Published in Red Rising Magazine, Prairie Fire, CV2, EVENT, Yellow Medicine Review, Poetry Is Dead, and pulp MAG, Tawahum's poetry stokes the sacred fire of resurgence and decolonization on occupied Turtle Island. Their writing dips into the valleys of healing intergenerational trauma, up the rocky cliffs of reconnecting with culture, and against the solid concrete city streets of colonization. They've featured on stages including Talking Stick, Verses, and Drum-is-Calling festivals. In their 4th year of studies toward a BA in Creative Writing at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in BC, their upcoming poetry collection, Political & Personal, will be published in June 2019 with Metatron Press. They invite you to join them on a journey that is both emotionally personal and deeply political.
