Tattoos (Daa kaashx'it, Kaadaayi dułkeis'i)

Tattoos are permanent regalia. How is it you behave when you wear your regalia? Tattoos are an ancient practice of Indigenous people and signify a modern day  responsibility to our ancient identities. Upon our bodies, we wear our history, the deeds to our lands, our access to the skies, and seas, our relatives. 

We will not ask permission to do what we have always done nor will we ask permission to be who we have always been. 

With our tattoos we Indigenize every space we are in.
