Łutselk’e Dene, Plains Cree, Two-Spirit, & Nonbinary poet, Tawahum Bige resides on unceded Musqueam/Tsleil-Waututh/Squamish territory. Featured in over-10 lit-journals including Prairie Fire, Contemporary Verse 2, Grain Magazine and EVENT Magazine, their Scorpio-moon-ass poems expose growing, resisting and persisting as a hopeless sadboy on occupied Turtle Island. In traditional Aries-sun fashion, Tawahum completed KPU’s Creative Writing BA-program and Banff Centre’s first-ever Indigenous Spoken Word Residency.
Tawahum’s work has appeared in EVENT Issue 47/2 and was nominated for Pushcart Prize in 2018. They also performed as a featured reader at EVENT’s Aboriginal Voices event in 2018.
For our 2020 (Virtual) Fall Reading Series, they read, “Atmospheric Haze– after Joseph Dandurand”.
