Speaking Crow is funded and facilitated by the Winnipeg International Writers Festival (WIWF) which is committed to creating safe and respectful opportunities for writers, volunteers, audience members, and workers to share knowledge, explore ideas, and build community.
Victoria Redsun writes and rhymes to heal inter-generational wounds. They are Denesuline and Nehito from Reindeer Lake in so-called northern Manitoba. They have various publications in grassroots magazines, have competed nationally in poetry slams on behalf of Winnipeg Poetry Slam 2018, and have featured in various festivals in Canada. They recently featured in C Magazine based out of Toronto. Redsun works in community justice and with frontline movements across Turtle Island.
