Sequoia's family is from the White Earth Nation and the Hoopa Valley. They grew up in Mni Sota Makoce (Minnesota) in what is now the Twin Cities. Creating art is something that they have always done. They started doing theatre at age 8 and has never stopped. They have since then expanded into also creating performance art, films, and poetry. They find that most of my work is about the Indigenous perspective of water.
Sequoia is multidisciplinary artist in the Twin Cities focused on creating theater, film, poetry, and performance art that decolonizes the process of art-making. They have seen first hand how art has the ability to inspire, connect, and build a sense of community. They makes art surrounding the narratives of continuation and resiliency among her communities.
Sequoia enjoys dabbling in many aspects of performance/theater as a stage manager, house manager, producer, director, curator, playwright, and performer. Sequoia has worked on and offstage with organizations such as Aniccha Arts, Art Shanty Projects, Exposed Brick Theatre, Māoriland, Pangea World Theater, Patrick's Cabaret, Poetry and Pie, The Southern Theater, and Turtle Theater Collective.
