Description:

Tales from the Bush is a gathering of three Indigenous women sharing stories and reflections, both critically and lovingly, on body, land, and how desire is performed, gathered, reflected, shared and celebrated within our communities. Together, we cultivate worlds of pleasure and joy as a love letter to all things worth fighting for.

Geraldine “Jibby” King comes from a long line of hilarious (and scandalous) Anishinaabe storytellers. She is currently a PhD student at Queen’s University where her doctoral work on what she calls “Bush Porn” affords her the opportunity to share wickedly wild stories of Anishinaabe erotics. 

Tenille K Campbell is a Dene/Métis author and photographer from English River First Nation, SK. She completed her MFA in Creative Writing from UBC and is enrolled in her PhD at the University of Saskatchewan. Her inaugural poetry book, #IndianLovePoems, is an award-winning collection of poetry that focuses on Indigenous Erotica, using humour and storytelling to reclaim and explore ideas of Indigenous sexuality.

Erica Violet Lee is an urban Nehiyaw Philosopher Queen from Treaty Six territory. Erica is a community organizer who creates and studies Indigenous philosophy and decolonial future epistemologies. She has worked with Idle No More, the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition, and the David Suzuki Foundation, among others, in the pursuit of Indigenous feminist freedom. She is a graduate student at OISE, University of Toronto.
