Ska:noñh & ii-wy em hotep (Welcome!) My name is Tamara (3 syllables; rhymes with camera), and I'm an Onondaga/Métis currently living in Oregon. Many things interest me: I'm a storyteller, scholar, technophile, and teacher, and I've written, edited, and designed books. I've worked as an Egyptologist and a Coptologist, and I've been involved with Kemetic Orthodoxy, a modern practice of ancient Egyptian polytheism, since founding it in 1989. My academic work includes two MAs (Egyptology at University of Chicago; Coptic Studies at Macquarie University) and a PhD in Religion via Claremont Graduate University. Topics related to Egypt are the main subject of this Patreon. (Interested in Haiti and/or Haitian Vodou? See my Vodou Patreon.)

Three of my Egypt-related projects were funded via Kickstarter campaigns. The first appeared in 2017, the second in 2018, and a third is in process. I'm working on other things as well, and that's where Patreon comes in. Projects require time, and time needs funding. Patreon helps me dedicate time to writing, teaching, and creating. This means more for you to read, more for me to write, and more for us to share: an un-vicious circle! Your membership supports me in doing things you appreciate. You receive perks and access to courses, Patreon-only opportunities, and the knowledge that you enable my craft and enrich my life. Let's have some fun!

Goals
$1,173 of $2,000 per month
At $2000 per month in Patreon memberships, I'm able to cover monthly rent and utilities, and can shift to full-time writing and producing my own projects. This would free me from the freelance hustle and provide tremendous opportunity to be more creative and productive.
