Lion’s Tooth Project

Lion’s Tooth Project

Lion’s Tooth Project inspires immigrant, queer, trans and BIPOC youth to have more agency around their personal stories, healing, and wellness through photography and earth medicine. We believe in the healing power of community, story-telling, story-keeping, and connection to the earth. We center the voices of QTBIPOC youth by connecting in our legacy, joy, and experiences as a tool for liberation.

Offering year-round intentional and youth-led programming we encourage young people to explore / honor their identities, understand the world around them, build leadership skills, and define what wellness and healing mean for them.

Follow us on IG @lionstoothproject to listen to our Hive Mind IG LIVE conversations with LEGACY photographers! Live weekly, September 2021.

Lion’s Tooth Legacy Photo Project, uplifts the stories of seven immigrant and first generation youth photographers. Stories that reflect on the intersections of family, ancestors, joy, race, gender, faith and radical self-love as a way to deconstruct the legacy we choose to carry, heal and part ways from, but also build as future ancestors.
