Born in Canada in 1965, Kent Monkman is a Cree artist widely known for his provocative explorations of colonization, sexuality, loss, and resilience. Monkman’s gender-fluid alter ego Miss Chief Eagle Testickle often appears in his work as a shape-shifting supernatural being who reverses the colonial gaze to challenge received notions of history and Indigenous peoples.
