Shilo George talks about the intersections of fatness, queerness, and indigeneity in her story of eating disorder recovery and advocacy. Shilo, a Southern Cheyenne-Arapaho and Scottish international speaker, trainer, and owner of Łush Kumtux Tumtum Consulting, shares her story with host Carter Umhau, LMHC and Opal Co-Founder Julie Church, RDN, CEDRD-S, CD. Her advocacy work and story speak to the need for a deeper conversation around race in the Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH) and Health At Every Size (HAES) communities (and beyond!), while also offering a vibrant window into her Body Sovereignty project which pursues the reclamation of her “SuperFat” body through the pursuit of joyful movement, therapy, storytelling, and the wisdom of her ancestors.
