Charlotte Henay is an interdisciplinary Bahamian diasporic writer, scholar and teacher. She works with poetry, lyric and visual essays to counter extinction myths through storywork and memorying. Her current research remembers and recenters Black and Indigenous womxn’s voices as witness, through poeisis and sitting with the bones. Charlotte’s professional background in critical race theory, and personal experience of being exiled, inform her work in black diasporic feminisms and indigenous feminist studies. Charlotte makes relative indigeneity and blackness as a protocol for imagining Afro-Indigenous futurities. Charlotte’s poem For My Sister has been selected for the ROOM Magazine special edition Turtle Island Talks Back.  She is currently a Ph.D. student in Comparative Perspectives and Cultural Boundaries, at York University.
