SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER -- During her studies at San Francisco State and abroad, she became acquainted with not only native women poets but others, from all backgrounds and abilities, including San Francisco’s third poet laureate, Devorah Major. She holds degrees in fine arts and textile arts, continues to create museum quality beadwork and textile arts, has taught Native American studies and currently teaches in the Diversity Studies Department at California College of the Arts. And yes, she writes plenty of poetry. Among her published works is the collection, Clouds Running In and the recently reissued Sidewalk NDN, about her experience as an urban native.
