Tracy Bear is Nehiyaw iskwêw (Cree woman) from Montreal Lake First Nation in northern Saskatchewan and the Director of the Indigenous Women’s Resilience Project.  She is an Assistant Professor cross appointed with the Faculty of Native Studies and the Dept. of Women’s and Gender Studies at the University of Alberta.  She is involved with a Research-Creation Laboratory series project with Kim Tallbear and Kirsten Lindquist called Tipi Confessions. This project consists of a triannual series of erotically themed storytelling and performance based shows in Edmonton Vancouver, Saskatoon, and on Wednesday, October 17, in Winnipeg. Tracy’s work explores how Indigenous articulations of sensuality, sexuality and gender form erotic expressions, and act as decolonizing mechanisms and addresses the question, “If this is my body, where are my stories?” Tracy argues for the recovery and what she calls, the practice of an Indigenous eroticanalysis as a reclamation of sovereignty over our Indigenous bodies.
