I’m just doing my job.
Iron & Wine - Flightless Bird, American Mouth
Then when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair,
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere
When I was a student, all that was told to me was how much my cultura didn’t matter. How important European art and standards are, and how totally dominant their aesthetic should be. All I wanted to do was tell my story. And I looked nothing like what is considered relevant or beautiful or important by society’s ideals. But I JUST.KEPT.GOING. Here are some of my pieces. I’m here to uplift and change who is in the spotlight. Powerful womyn of color. My indigenous sisters.
