Storme Webber is a Two Spirit Sugpiaq/Black/Choctaw poet and interdisciplinary artist. Her work is cross-genre, incorporating text, performance, audio and altar installation, archival photographs and collaboration in order to engage with ideas of history, lineage, gender, race and sexuality. Her practice explores liminal identities, survivance and decolonization, and does so in a blues/jazz-based experimental manner. Webber has received honors and residencies from Hedgebrook, Ragdale and the Banff Arts Center, among others. The Frye Museum hosted her first solo exhibit, "Casino: A Palimpsest," in 2017. Webber studied at Lakeside School and holds a BA from the New School and an MFA from Goddard University.
Sara Marie Ortiz is a hybrid-genre writer, advocate and educator, an enrolled citizen of Acoma Pueblo, a graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts, Antioch University of Los Angeles’ MFA program and is co-founder of the Northwest Native Writers Circle.
