In this self-portrait, Coyote Park reveals the artist’s role as seer and innovator of their own identity. Both uninhibited and majestic, Coyote offers the viewer an intimate and assertive vision of two-spirit transmasculinity, while disrupting binary expectations of hypermasculine presentation. Coyote’s ethereal ambiguity commands power, which is particularly poignant in a post-colonial world designed to make queer people feel both small and defenseless. This portrait reads as a personal love letter to ancestral tradition and the multiplicity and expansiveness of the self.
