        About Dion Kaszas

        Hi my name is Dion Kaszas,

        As an Indigenous cultural tattoo practitioner and scholar I have worked hard at answering the Creators question, “What will you do for the people to be?” Initially my answer was the revival of my ancestral, Nlaka’pamux tattooing tradition, which transformed into hesitantly becoming a leader in the revival of Indigenous tattooing in Canada.

        Over the past ten years I have been interviewed for newspaper articles, academic journals, graduate and undergraduate student papers and dissertations, also documentary films, radio and television programs. I am thankful for those who have taken the time to listen to the things I have to share about my work, but am always disappointed when I realize how much important information, insight and reflection is left on the cutting room floor, or left out of the final edit.

        Beginning in 2015 I have made the documenting and recording of my journey part of my artistic practice, including interviewing friends, family, and colleagues from the Indigenous tattoo community. As an Indigenous scholar I am perpetually reading and researching in and around the topics of Indigenous tattooing, Indigenous identities, decolonization, revitalization and the invigoration of Indigenous individuals, communities and cultures.

        I am thankful and grateful for all of the friends, family and colleagues who have gifted me with their stories, which include invaluable insights, information, and pearls of wisdom. I have created this online community as way for me to share the large archive of interviews, insights and content I have amassed over the years. It is also a way for me to reach out into the community and movement that has grown up around the reinvigoration of cultural tattooing in Canada and all across Turtle Island and give you the opportunity to become part of this important project.

        Due to the challenging times we are in, my income from tattooing has been cut off and I am hoping that you will show your gratitude for my work by becoming my Patron. As a Patron you will become a partner in this work which will allow me to continue to provide this resource to all who wish to hear what we have to say as Indigenous cultural practitioners. In the coming weeks I will be adding exclusive content that will only be accessible here, and will also be releasing sneak peaks from the many interviews I have done over the past year. 

        Thank you for checking out my page and supporting in me answering the Creators question, all that I do is for the coming generations,

        Dion Kaszas
