Valarie Proctor (Cedarville band of Piscataway Indians)

Sexual freedom to me means being able to choose not only my partner but how I respond to them. It means either with a partner or own my own, to honor and except gratification of an orgasm of pleasure. It means that I am a whole person with or without someone stimulating me to make me feel complete and beautiful and whole. I am enough, I am powerful and I own my sexuality in every way.

Valarie is a member of the Cedarville band of Piscataway Indians. Born and raised on her ancestral homelands in southern Maryland, Valarie is a farmer and student of herbalism who works to familiarize urban youth of color with the outdoor environment through farm-based and outdoor education programs. As a community organizer and indigenous environmental activist, Valarie works to weave spirituality with activism and share their traditional ways of living with those in social justice movements.
