I am first generation Filipino, and third generation Scandinavian. Raised by the ocean in the Coast Salish lands, I have been blessed to have been taught drum craft in the traditional ways.
A Mother to four young boys now living along the rivers, creeks and peaks of Southern Oregon – Takelma lands (Takubeh-Williams). My highest creative calling at this moment in my life journey is the traditional tanning of sheepskin pelts and hides, drum making, and lapidary stonework.
At Spirit Weavers I feel so blessed to be in the village of womyn. I live in a family of men and though I do have a supportive circle of sisters, to live among the Womban in such a big way feels magical.
Gratitude to my teachers who introduced me to drum circle visioning and was given my first drum by Patrick Pinson of Cedar Mountain Drums in 2013, to Jorge “Two Eagles” Lewis a Coast Salish Drum Maker and Maria Rose Sikyea, Dené Indigenous Mother, who taught me how to tan hides many moons ago.
