Editor in Chief -
Starting out as a fashion and portrait photographer, Alvinita, has and continues to capture so many different and beautiful people. While capturing those people, she noticed that there was a lack of people similar to her in the industry.
Alvinita, being Mexican and Hopi, she found her self seeking out models of similar backgrounds. Having growing up not seeing faces like hers and ones around her in magazines, fashion, films, etc., she wanted to put those faces there.
Her idea was to create a magazine showcasing indigenous photographers' work, indigenous models, indigenous made fashion, indigenous MUA work... overall indigenous talent!
With the help and support of her family, friends, and other indigenous creatives, she photographed, edited, and created the first issue of TSANGE' Magazine in May 2022!
