REBECCA NAGLE, writer, activist, host of This Land podcast
October 6, 2020 / 7:00 pm EDT
A citizen of the Cherokee Nation living in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, Rebecca Nagle identifies as a two spirit (queer) woman. Nagle is a community organizer and writer, studying the Cherokee language. Nagle was recently named one of the National Center American Indian Enterprise Development’s 2016 Native American 40 Under 40 for her work to address violence against Native women.
One of her early projects, in 2012, was a website she built with Hannah Brancato called “Pink Loves Consent.” It coincided with the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The website looked like the Victoria’s Secret website, but provided information about rape education.
As co-founder and co-director of FORCE: Upsetting Rape Culture, and The Monument Quilt, Nagle organized national art and advocacy projects to create a culture of support for survivors. Nagle also was a co-creator behind the 2017 viral #GoRedhawks culture jam. Her original writing has appeared in Bitch Media, The Baltimore Sun, Boston Globe, ThinkProgress, Indian Country Today and more. Her organizing and advocacy work has been recognized and covered by outlets such as NBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, NPR, Indian Country Today, USA Today, Teen Vogue and The Huffington Post.
In 2019, Nagle hosted the podcast This Land, which focused on Sharp v. Murphy, a court case involving the boundaries of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation reservation. The case was recently decided per curiam by the U.S. Supreme Court in their ruling on a related case, McGirt v. Oklahoma.
