Red Rising Magazine
Winnipeg, MB | Canada
Red Rising Magazine is a non-profit Indigenous-centred magazine providing an unfiltered space for Indigenous youth, writers, artists, academics and community to share their stories and showcase their brilliance. Created in 2015 by Indigenous youth in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, word of Red Rising Magazine has quickly spread across the continent and the magazine even boasts readership as far away as New Zealand! More recently, Red Rising started an educational branch called Red Rising Education which creates authentic Indigenous Education resources for teachers and students.
Red Rising Magazine Issue 1: The Rising Generation cover art created by Justin Larivee situates Indigenous Peoples as existing in the present, while still maintaining our traditional culture. Inside, we include poems, essays, stories and art that focuses on understanding history and reclaiming Indigenous identity and pride.
Red Rising Magazine Issue 7: Two Spirit is about uplifting Two-Spirit voices and their creative expression to spark dialogue on why we need to decolonize the way we value gender and sexuality within our communities. Two-Spirited people are the most marginalized in our communities due to the ongoing colonialism and assimilation that has resulted in gender and sexual-based violence, systemic oppression and the current suicide crisis on-reserve. This issue serves to acknowledge the beauty, value and resistance of our two-spirited relatives, as they are impacted in many ways by both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. As we embark on our collective journey of decolonization, we must honour Two-Spirited people for all the gifts Creator has given them.
