DeLesslin George-Warren

DeLesslin George-Warren grew up with one moccasin in the “city” of Rock Hill, SC and the other in the Catawba Indian Reservation. Today he continues to straddle multiple boundaries as an artist, researcher, activist, and performer. After graduating with a Bachelor of Music from Vanderbilt University in May 2014, DeLesslin was a Humanity-in-Action Fellow followed by a return to his reservation to conduct workshops with Catawba youth and oral history interviews with Catawba elders. Since relocating to the District of Columbia he has continued performing, creating, and lecturing throughout the east coast including Nashville, Washington, Baltimore, New York City, Ithaca, and Charleston. Current projects include a queer reimagining of canonical texts (Regendered Reading Room), a massively collaborative online poem (Hyperlink Poetry), and a performance-lecture about the great history of the Catawba Indian Nation (Histories).
