Shuína Skó Oregon

Shuína Skó is a Two-Spirit Indigenous spoken-word poet who shares openly, authentically and with vulnerability. Her poetry gives voice to the Indigenous experience (through the perspective of a member of The Klamath Tribes), such as historical trauma to present day resilience! Shuína is passionate about breaking false stereotypes of Indigenous people, being a light, and moving forward in a good way toward strengthening our community as a whole. Shuína strongly believes that historical trauma, epigenetics, and ongoing oppression present increased challenges for Indigenous peoples. Shuína also believes and has witnessed firsthand that Indigenous people are incredibly resilient, have immense strength, are adaptable, and highly creative!
