Portrait of Tiumaluali'i Jody Marie Hassel

Tiumaluali’i Jody Marie Hassel uses her writing in tandem with her practice of Sāmoan siva to recover and embody the real and imagined pathways of her most ancient ancestors. A 2023 Rasmuson Foundation Fellow, she is working on a memoir that details her search for and reunion with her biological family, entitled To the Root: Recovery of a Sāmoan Princess in the Exile of Erasure. Also a performing artist, she lives on Tanana Dené lands in a town now known as Ester, Alaska. (updated 10/2023)
