Shawnelle Blackbird-Riley

Writer and Dance Artist

Aanii! My name is Shawnelle, I also go by Shawn. On my mothers side I am lenape and potawatomi, on my fathers side I am ojibway. Growing up in munsee-delaware with my mother, grandmother, and siblings I found joy in movement as well as healing. Movement and writing have been a space for grieving the losses our communities face.
