Three guests join Tiokasin in a round­table dis­cus­sion for the full hour. Jonathan Gon­za­les was born in Tux­te­pec, Oax­a­ca, Mex­i­co and grew up in south­ern Cal­i­for­nia. He has spent the last 12 years learn­ing earth liv­ing skills and ances­tral cer­e­mo­ni­al ways with many teach­ers and elders, com­bined with par­tic­i­pat­ing in Indige­nous, earth-based cer­e­monies along with a quest to con­nect more deeply with his ances­tral lin­eage, which is Indige­nous Taino from Puer­to Rico, Chi­nan­te­co from Mex­i­co, and African). Dio­gan­hdih Hall, Mohawk of Akwe­sasne, is a Hau­denosaunee com­mu­ni­ty mem­ber and a two-spir­it mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary artist based in their tra­di­tion­al home­lands in so called upstate NY.” Their medi­um of expres­sion weaves between ances­tral food cul­ti­va­tion, sto­ry­telling, com­mu­ni­ty orga­niz­ing, hip hop lyri­cism, beat pro­duc­tion and sound engi­neer­ing. Their pri­ma­ry focus of their work is claim­ing space for Native folks to re-Indi­g­e­nize and find move­ment and joy in the inter­con­nect­ed lib­er­a­tion of our bod­ies, spir­it and land. Dio­gan­hdih is cur­rent­ly work­ing on a food sov­er­eign­ty project in the Hud­son Val­ley called Iron Path farms (@ironpathfarms).

Rad Pereira (they/​them) is a queer trans (im)migrant artist and cul­tur­al work­er of Pin­do­ra­ma, Abya Yala (Brasil) build­ing con­scious­ness between heal­ing jus­tice, sys­tem change, reindi­g­e­niza­tion and queer futures. They are based in Lenape­hok­ing (Brook­lyn) and Hau­denosaunee ter­ri­to­ry (north­ern Hud­son Val­ley). They are Direc­tor of Engage­ment & Impact at NY Stage & Film. They are build­ing a Native led food sov­er­eign­ty and world build­ing project called Iron Path Farms. They are a sol­i­dar­i­ty econ­o­my orga­niz­er work­ing across plat­forms, com­mu­ni­ties and indus­tries. @______rad___. Kapi‘olani A. Laronal, MA, Ed., is a descen­dant of the Hai­da (Eagle Clan, Sgwaa Gita­nee, Peo­ple of the Tall Grass), Tsimshi­an, Native Hawai­ian, and Fil­ipino. Kapi­olani’s expe­ri­ences work­ing with Native com­mu­ni­ties on ocean and land restora­tion projects, cul­tur­al preser­va­tion, and pro­to­cols have sig­nif­i­cant­ly shaped her aca­d­e­m­ic and pro­fes­sion­al life. She is an edu­ca­tor, ath­lete, life coach, and consultant.
