Ta7talíya Michelle Lorna Nahanee, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, is a decolonial creative & strategist catalyzing social change to transform colonial narratives & impacts. She works within the intersection of class, culture and creativity, focusing on social change through communications and design. As the founder and CEO of Nahanee Creative, she has worked in Indigenous-specific communications design for 25 plus years to influence opinions, change behaviours and mobilize community action. She now applies those skills and experiences to decolonization & indigenization.
Ta7talíya is the designer of a life-size board game called Sínulhkay and Ladders and is launching a second, more accessible decolonizing board game called Walking in Good Relations. Ta7talíya is also the author of two decolonizing workbooks and is currently writing a full-length creative non-fiction about her decolonizing journey.
Ta7talíya designs and hosts facilitated decolonial workshops that answer the question “what now?” in this era of truth & reconciliation. Her approach earned her the 2019 City of Vancouver Award of Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion. She is a 2020 Dialogue Associate with the Simon Fraser University Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue. In 2018, she earned a Master of Arts in Communication from Simon Fraser University where she focused on Indigenous Critical Theory & Decolonization.
