We Are Who We Are was one of the best events I have ever participated in.
The ultra diverse group of performers read poems, danced burlesque, sang songs in their languages, and much more.
To say We Are Who We Are was awesome would be an understatement.
I read 4 poems at We Are Who We Are:
1. I Don’t Use Your Last Name (about my identity)
2. If At All (about how Native women and women of colour are treated different by Dr.’s)
3. Water Was Not Enough (about losing my best friend to addiction)
4. I Use My Mother’s Last Name (my mom is my #1)
Thanks to Vero Diaz for taking this photo of me, and to the ASL interpreter in the video!
