Who are you? Where do you come from? What zine do you make?
Amber McCrary and Melanie Fey are both Diné zinesters from Flagstaff, AZ. Amber currently resides in Phoenix, AZ and Melanie currently resides in Portland, OR. They are the co-founders of Native Zinestress aka Native American Feminist Musings. They have created Empower Yoself before you wreck Yoself Vol. 1, The Nizhoni Beat Vol.1 and Shik'is Shiheart Vol.1 to date.
What would you like people to know about the zines you create and/or why you are looking forward to tabling at Phx Zine Fest 2016?
We create our zines with an Indigenous lens about any topic that we are passionate about (i.e. feminism, decolonization, riot grrrl, music, subculture, being a woman of color, food, travel, relationships, angst, empowerment, embarrassment, identity, the list can go on for days) which can come in different forms such as poetry, short story, artwork, prose, rants, photography, collages, etc. We are very excited to table because Arizona is our home state and this will be the first zinefest we will be tabling in good ol' AZ.
