Greetings from the Grand River by way of New York City! I'm Vickie, I'm Tuscarora and a playwright and I love to tell stories. Mostly about the Ndnz, the Haudensaunee (well, mostly complaining about Mohawks "Ooooh, we're so coool, we're Mohawk -" but I digress...). I also like to tell stories about intersectionality, colonialism and the chaos it keeps inflicting on our ever changing society.
I also write film and television because I love storytelling in every form we have...I also natter away on some blogs too. Please feel free to journey around this website, and reach out to me if you have any questions.
