Kenzie Allen is a descendant of the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin. She is currently a lecturer at York University, and an R1-Advanced Opportunity Program Fellow and PhD Candidate in English & Creative Writing at the University of Wisconsin—Milwaukee. Her research centers on documentary and visual poetics, literary cartography, and the enactment of Indigenous sovereignties through creative works. Kenzie’s most recent project is a multimodal book of poetry which incorporates intergenerational histories and diasporic movements, Haudenosaunee traditions, and archival materials of the Carlisle Indian Boarding School. She received her MFA in Poetry from the Helen Zell Writers’ Program at the University of Michigan, and her BA in Anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis. Her poems can be found in Boston Review, Narrative Magazine, Best New Poets, and other venues, and she is the founder and managing editor of the Anthropoid collective.
