I am an Indigenous media maker and ancestral scribe. I create images, still, moving and in VR, to amplify the voices of Indigenous people and the natural world. I also make to bring people joy, connection and for healing trauma.
I create within community, for those communities only, as well as for sharing between communities and with the general public. I am most often found in the Misak community (Cauca, Colombia), my Yaqui community (Sonora, Mexico), and across Haudenosaunee territories (New York and Canada).
I have worked in over 40 countries, apprenticed with Karel Cudlin, studied at FAMU, Prague, CZ, received an MFA from University of Texas, Austin, and full-time photo faculty at Texas State University and Central Texas College ~ Tahila Mintz
