Raven is a Queer, Metis, 2Spirit trans man originally from Treaty 1 Territory. He grew up in the inner city of Winnipeg but currently lives on the traditional territories of the Sinixt peoples. He is a social work student, beader, support worker, and hide tanner. Raven comes to this work from his own lived experiences of poverty, violence, and trauma, and over the years has sought out healing through many different avenues. He has found that it has been connection to culture, ceremony, and land based practices that have created the most meaningful change in his life. Raven is committed to working in community to share our collective knowledges and practises of trauma work and is particularly interested in working with other men to decolonize masculinity and connect to our roles and responsibilities as a path to healing and accountability.
