walk me through Wounded Knee

in thoughts of resistance



Instructed by Haŋwí

In their debut collection of poetry, Autumn White Eyes explores being guided by the feminine and queer energies gifted to them by the moon, given to them in phases and cycles on their journey towards understanding their identities, relationships, and responsibilities as a young Native two-spirit femme.

This poetry book is self-published and printed at Independent print shop in Tecumseh, MI. Limited first edition.

Autumn White Eyes (they, them, theirs) is Oglala Lakota and Turtle Mountain Band of Anishinaabe, and was raised on the Pine Ridge Reservation in the temporarily occupied settler-state of South Dakota.


They received a B.A. as a double major in Native American Studies and English with a concentration in Creative Writing at Dartmouth College, and an Ed.M. in Arts in Education at Harvard Graduate School of Education. They were 2018-2019 member of the Intercultural Leadership Institute and a recipient of the South Dakota Arts Council’s 2019 Artist Career Development Grant.


Autumn is a Queer, two-spirit femme spoken-word artist and arts educator. Their artwork focuses on releasing the femme, Queer, and Indigenous rage that lives deep within. Their Lakota name, Wanbli Ohitika Win means Brave Eagle Femme.  Autumn lives with their partner and puppy and works remotely as a self-employed teaching artist in Lenapehoking (Lenape ancestral homelands) currently occupied by the settler-state of New Jersey.
