Nite Sun is a Cree-Queer-Métis Culture Carrier who embraces, teaches, and continues to learn about their cultural identity through their art. Nite Sun is Non-Binary, meaning they prefer "they/them" pronouns. This also means they view self as a spirit living a physical experience, and to them, spirit has no gender.
So, to honour this truth, they choose to walk with their Cree Spirit name, Tipiskâw (meaning "Nite") and Pîsim (meaning "Sun"). They are a being of many talents, emotions, and teachings. They understand that they still have much to learn, and as they reflect on their journey, they wish to share what they can along the way.
Their Art consists of Hip Hop Music, Poetry, Dancing and Acting.
Nite Sun's homelands are out on the East Prairie Métis Settlement and Sawridge First Nation, which are both located in Northern Alberta on Treaty 8 Territory. Political, sultry and chill, Nite Sun will inspire you to question your colonial mindset, while also empowering you to be your own healer through their artistic storytelling abilities.
