“I am someone who is raised up daily by my ancestors and spiritual practice and the elements: fire, fire and smoke, water, water and steam, air and the ethers we cannot see, and always earth as my main accomplice as the source of frequency that I am most attuned to.”
Tence magazine’s editor Cassidy Lyn spoke with Taja about their use of ritual in creative process, lineages of art-making somatics and their methodology Diaspora Futurism.
“I am interested in indigenous solidarity and decolonizing the hierarchy of relationships with power, privilege, wealth and access. Co-learning, co-teaching, co-living, and so much more are possible in radical ways. Ways which potentially lead to the dismantling of white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, the gender binary, and internalized colonialism. I believe radical dream mapping expands what we know to be true, it engages artistic imagination and from there we can, perhaps, emerge a new world.” Sacrosanct is a queer community blog and digital space for queer, trans, and non-binary BIPOC to heal, self define, and self actualize through art and wellness.
