Sunkosi Galay-Tamang (Suna) is an Indigenous artist of mixed ancestries (Tamang clan / Himalayas, Dënesųłı̨né / Turtle Island, Jewish-Ukraine, Germany, Scotland) born on the ancestral homelands of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and Səl̓ílwətaʔ Nations. She believes in art as ceremony and the body as pedagogy, and is a co-founder of the Flowering Earth Arts Society, an organization dedicated to land- and body-based arts education. She is passionate about reclamation of ancestral skills, language and physiological wisdom as pathways to sovereignty and communal health.
Sunkosi has been tanning hides since 2017, working mainly with deer, sheep and buffalo, and began teaching in 2021. She has had amazing teachers along the way and loves sharing these skills with Indigenous community.
