A Space for Writers of the World
Annita Lucchesi is Southern Cheyenne, with ancestral roots in what is now the Colorado-Wyoming border region. She is a survivor of domestic and sexual violence, and currently works at the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, which fights for safety for Native women by advocating for tribal sovereignty. Annita is also a graduate student at Washington State University, in the Department of Critical Culture, Gender, & Race Studies. Her scholastic work is a self-reflexive study of art as a means of storytelling experiences of genocide in Native communities, with the end-goal of creating alternative languages with which to imagine restorative justice. She also frequently writes on violence against Native women and Native fashion, and blogs at Nita Nahkohe and FYeahIndigenousFashion.
