Tai Simpson is “The Storyteller” in the indigenous language of the Nez Perce Tribe of Idaho. She believes indigenous “old ways” need to come back in style. They are the principles on which many indigenous communities build their social and political narratives. As an antiracism activist and community leader, she uses contemporary and traditional Indigenous storytelling to depict the lens of “old ways” and how it is used to protect the sacred, build strength in the community, and keep nature in balance. Tai studied Political Philosophy & Public Law at Boise State University. In the community, she serves as a social justice activist & organizer for the Indigenous Idaho Alliance. She works as a Social Change Advocate at the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence.
