Meet the Speakers

Tanner (he/they) @tannerphillips1990 :

Kwe, my name is Tanner Sha’tekenhatie Phillips.
I am Kanien’kehá:ka from Kahnawake where I was born, raised and have lived most of my life.
In 2019, at the age of 29, I came out as Trans. Since then, I’ve had time to discover and learn more about my gender identity and culture. Through that journey, I discovered pow wow dancing and it has helped me to reconnect with many aspects of myself. I look forward to sharing experiences and connecting with Trans and Two Spirit youth.

MC (he/him) @Atehaw :

M.C Snow is a sculptor and powwow dancer and has been on the trail and performing with various groups since 1995. For the first 20 years as fancy shawl, jingle, and women’s traditional dancer. For the last 4 years he has been dancing and beginning to compete in senior men’s traditional. An older person wearing regalia at a powwow
