Alexis P. Morgan (she/they; demon femme; queer) is a bon vivant muse, multi-disciplinary artist, and 21st century village witch, devoted to the work of radical luxury as apocalypse medicine. In her role as ancestral spirit-worker and as the founding lineage holder of Mzizi Udongo, Alexis is focused on providing tools for her community to embody an ethic of post-scarcity with integrity & compassion.
Always making some sort of mischief, she aspires to inherit the title of “the most exciting [femme] in the world” from Eartha Kitt, by way of a vivid + kindly phantasm of the late Orson Welles.
When not doing whatever the fuck she wants, she’s doing whatever the fuck she wants and getting paid for it.
A Quick Note On My Identities…
I’m an autistic, Afro-Indigenous (light-skinned) femme who experiences physical disability (multiple sclerosis; fibromyalgia) and who practices sorcery and who lives my life according to the rhythms of Judaism. Additionally, I was adopted twice: once as a child by my guardians, who were older, white, and in a queerplatonic relationship, and then again as an adult, by my mother, who is also an Afro-Indigenous (Yamassee/Mvskoke).
My biological, birthing parent identified her father as being Cherokee (Tsalagi/Aniyunwiya). However, due to various legal issues concerning my adoption, and other logistical obstacles (including the death of my birthing parent, whose DNA would be required to establish genealogical relationships, in order to establish or rule out kinship ties to any band of the Cherokee Nation(s)), I am unable to confirm this information at this time and thus re-establish my formal relationships to community. I was raised by my first set adoptive guardians as a bi-ethnic (Black & Indigenous) Black girl, my allegiance and final line political and cultural commitments are to Indigenous sovereignty, land rematriation, and Black liberation. I am proud of being an Afro-Indigenous femme, but, I also recognize my relationship is personal and it is important – for the well-being and safety of other Indigenous people – that I am transparent and careful about the space I assume and hold with this part of my identity. I make it a point to not take space, opportunities, honors, recognition, or resources from Indigenous people who have known and unambiguous ties to community, not to use my identity as a source of personal or professional authority, or to make claims that are not mine to make.
Additionally, my adoptive family chose to forgo formal Jewish education due to concerns about the incredible amount of marginalization that already existed in our lives (as Black children, in the Deep South/USA in general, being raised by a visibly queer albeit platonic couple in the 90s), a lack of religiosity on my adoptive mother’s part, and logistical issues (the nearest synagogue was Orthodox) early on in my childhood. I was raised in a culturally but not religiously Jewish home, around Jewish friends and extended family, with what I would identify as secular Jewish ethical values. I returned to Judaism as an adult, in 2018, after the Tree of Life Synagogue shooting, and have been on that journey since. I live my life as a Jewish woman/femme, my life organizes itself around the pace of Jewish life. I identify as somewhere between a Secular Humanist and Reconstructionist in my philosophy, and am interested in formal conversion, if the ability to do so presented itself, felt right, and was not at odds with my other spiritual identities and values. However, I recognize that my ancestral spiritual practices and engagement with mysticism and magic may preclude me from formal conversion with even the most liberal of Reconstructionist or Reform rabbis, and as a result, I am content in my multicultural, multifaceted, lifeway Judaism, and trust that Gxd knows the work + prayer of my heart and hands. As with my Indigenous identity, I endeavour to not take up space that is not appropriate for me to step into in Jewish dialogue, communities, or spaces.
