Art Mentioned in this Episode:
Kit Thomas is a Los Angeles based two-spirited visual artist, influencer, and drag performer. She has been honing her skills for the last decade. Her main focus is painting, and she also expresses herself through digital art. Marketing herself on social media has paved the way for many opportunities including showcasing with RAW Artists and being featured in a Jubilee Media video. As a two-spirit, Kit’s pronouns are she/her and he/him.
While dabbling with watercolor and acrylic, she has blended symbols from her indigenous roots and elements from her travels across the U.S. Kit is part of the wolf clan within the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe of Akwesasne. As a member of the Haudenosaunee alliance, also known as the Iroquois Confederacy, she grew up on the Akwesasne reservation located in both Canada and the U.S. Kit’s recent evolution from acrylic on canvas to digital art has given her another avenue for bringing awareness to important social issues.
