Cheryl Corson is a writer and textile artist at the core. Her Maine roots go back to the 1980s when she lived on Mount Desert Island as a production weaver, then a craft show organizer, and public art project manager for the Maine Arts Commission. She still owns the cottage she lived in then. After 17 years as a landscape architect in private practice (she is licensed in Maine and Maryland), Cheryl returned to school in 2019 to study Health & Wellness Coaching. Her new venture, based in Lancaster, PA, is called Resonance With Nature. She offers Peter Hess method sound massage, health and wellness coaching, and even floating sound meditations on stand up paddle boards. Cheryl believes that environmental and personal health are inseparable, and she does what she can to foster healthy connections between people, critters, and the planet. She sees All Tribes as an opportunity to play with all these ideas and help people recharge and do good in the world. Her websites (for now) are www.cherylcorson.com and https://corsonlearning.com

Magally Ann Rizo Antuna Luna - Latinx: Colombiana/Xicana, Bilingual Magally comes from a long lineage of Musicians, Dancers, Storytellers, Keepers of the Earth and Observers of the sky. In her youth, on stage she educated audiences about the Indo-Afro American folklore of Colombia (Indian (Native American) , African and European) and the Mestizo culture of Mexico, through dance and song. With these arts she weaves the curriculum focusing on her love for the greater America. Using these gifts from her ancestry she has taught at the Denver Waldorf School for over 20 years, establishing a strong Spanish program and currently is class teacher of 4th grade. She inspires her students’ imagination through laughter and her ancestral creativity which ignites an interest and curiosity that motivates learners to delve deeply into topics. She strives to create culture and community by working collaboratively to develop the D&I committee and the Restorative Practice committee in her school. As an artist she is a long time core actress at Denver’s Bilingual theater, Su Teatro. I have been seen in Su Teatro’s production of “La Carpa Aztlan”, and have worked at the Arvada Center, 73rd Ave. Theater Company, Crossroads, and Mercury Cafe. I am a local Salsa musician, with the band Kizumba and have recently released her own work on an original bilingual CD, “Pearl Moon” soon to be released digital. Her roots are here in Colorado
