About Me

Edlánet’e-a!

My name is Tunchai Redvers and I am a dene/métis queer/2spirit social justice warrior, writer, and wanderer from treaty 8 territory in northern Canada, currently based out of Tkaronto (Toronto), Ontario. With a background Master of Indigenous Social Work Degree, I have been dedicated for years to the youth empowerment and non-profit world. Identifying as an artist, I am a poet, model, actor, facilitator and public speaker. My most recent debut book, Fireweed, which is a collection of poetry and prose was released in 2019 with Kegedonce Press. By night, I am also an active burlesque and drag performer, taking up space on stages across the country.

 

My advocacy and writing work tends to focus on intergenerational trauma, LGBTQ and two-spirit rights, youth and womxn's empowerment, and the decolonization and indigenization of identity, mental health and healing. As the co-founder of We Matter, a national Indigenous youth life promotion organization, I have spent considerable time living, travelling, speaking, and working with Indigenous communties internationally and across Canada, and consider myself a nomad just like my ancestors. 

Style

Style and fashion for me has always been about self-expression and body reclamation. As an Indigenous womxn, my style represents culture, pride, resilience, and radical self-love. I don't always follow standard rules and mainstream trends, but instead try to decolonize and indigenize the eye through the use of clothing and accessories. My style can be loosely described as a mix of retro and modern Indigenous chic, drawing on influences of Indigenous resurgence, queer and androgynous culture, vintage and consignment. Sustainable fashion is always a goal, with traditional materials and revamped items at the core. With this blog, I want to create a space where Indigenous and Queer womxn see themselves and their stories represented.
