Hello relatives! My name is Christian. I am Cusabo + Black and belong to the Notoweega Nation. I am an Acupuncturist, Herbalist, Artist, and Emerging Farmer from Northwest Ohio.
I worked for 10+ beloved years in nonprofit administration and grassroots organizing. I’ve had the good fortune to partner with institutions, small businesses, nonprofit, and for profit organizations internationally and throughout the U.S. to provide popular education based workshops and retreats. Past partners include the Chicago Freedom School, Project Nia, DePaul University, Northwestern University, and the Mispon Indigenous Film Festival.
MERIDIANS is a natural continuation of the portfolio I started in med school, while the writing and photography serves as an exploration of my work as a whole. I lean into practices such as research, storytelling and intersectionality as a way to nurture a deeper understanding about people, plants and the planet.
I hope you find comfort, connection, and community here.
