The members of the all-Indigenous burlesque group, Virago Nation, say they’re on “a mission to reclaim Indigenous sexuality from the toxic effects of colonization.” They recently performed at Vancouver’s all Indigenous art and performance event, Talking Stick Festival and they are part of the upcoming Dancing Into the Light – a Women’s Weekend. They’re among a number of artists incorporating Indigenous touches to express sexuality in creative ways.
