RESTORING RELATIONAL DYNAMICS TO FOOD, SEXUALITY, RELATIONSHIPS, ECONOMY, AND LAND THROUGH RESTORING CREATIVE AUTONOMY.
For this, we thank our ancestors' wisdom-
From ancient bacteria to fungi, primates, and elders - we connect back to living as one surging, thriving community.
Morgan Hopson is an eating recovery counselor, writer, researcher, and speaker in the occupied Ohlone Territory (Bay Area). Morgan's philosophy is deeply rooted in the notion that Indigenous and Native communities must be protected, honored, and restored in order for climate and social resiliency and sustainability to be possible. Morgan focuses on the decolonization of western anthropology and western bio-medicine as a means of supporting this goal.
Morgan teaches and presents research on eating disorder treatment modalities from an evolutionary anthropological view which aims at restoring social-political-economic-ecological systems in response to the global impacts of capitalism, industrialization, colonial-imperialism, and neo-liberal food politics as eating disorder recovery. Morgan works with individuals, groups, and treatment centers in a wide array of practices including therapeutic healing practices for sexual trauma, sexuality and identity counseling, sustainable fashion coaching, eating disorder education, anthropological research, and dance.
Morgan is of Tsalagiyi Nvdagi Wind Clan/Muscogee Creek, Italian, and Euro-Settler heritage from East Texas. As ancestral lineage work, she studies and practices Indigenous Friulian (Italian) Women's medicinal philosophy and Tsalagi life philosophy as a citizen of the Tsalagiyi Nvdagi tribe in East Texas.
