Welcome to Nahanee Creative Inc founded by Ta7talíya Michelle Nahanee, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, a decolonial facilitator & strategist catalyzing social change to transform colonial narratives & impacts through centred Indigeneity. Ta7talíya works within the intersection of class, culture and creativity focusing on social change through communications and deep engagement.
Ta7talíya’s collaborations have influenced opinions, changed behaviours and mobilized community action. She is the designer of a life-size board game called Sínulhkay and Ladders and workshop called Decolonizing Practices which aims to answer the question “what now” in this era of truth & reconciliation. Her approach has earned her the 2019 City of Vancouver Award of Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion. Michelle is also a 2020 Dialogue Associate with the Simon Fraser University Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue.
In May 2020, Ta7talíya wrote & designed Decolonize First, a liberating guide & workbook for peeling back the layers of neocolonialism as a creative contribution towards increasing accessibility to decolonization.
