Marlena Gates & Trevino Brings Plenty
Trevino Brings Plenty, Lakota. Poet. Musician. He currently resides in Portland, OR.
Adrian Quintanar, a lifelong resident of Pomona, California, located in traditional Tongva territory, earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Creative Writing at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. He is currently a first year MFA candidate in Poetry at IAIA. When not reading or writing poetry, he enjoys reading all things examining indigeneity and colonization, both historical and contemporary. He has yet to be published, as he is practicing publication-celibacy until the time is right, and special--or at least until he becomes more skilled.
