Taylor Amari Little    

Diviner, Esoteric Birthworker, Educator & Artist of (Un)Veiled Divine Technologies

Taylor Amari Little (Tay) is a diviner, birthworker, Conjurewoman, Muslim, artist and overall lover of research and history at (Un)Veiled Divine Technologies. Her background also includes Criminology, an experience heavily shaped by her spirits. Rooted in Hoodoo and Islam, she works with her spirits and that of her clients to create handmade prayer blankets, run birthwork services for specific lineages to help commune with baby spirits before they're born, create writings, Tay in the Water Podcast, facilitate workshops and educational engagements, and operate other spirit-led projects. Tay's work is ultimately performed with the purpose of reconnecting Black lineages and fighting for Black Indigenous power.

Historically, most of Tay’s organizing work has revolved around queer Muslim advocacy and advocacy for LGBTQ+ Black people + people of color, specializing in the cultivation of liberatory/healing spaces for LGBTQ+ Black people + people of color, and facilitation around Black people exploring their spiritual gifts. Much of his academic research has long focused on sex workers, with a thesis of exploring the ontology of Black (trans + cis) women sex workers, as it relates to the anti-Blackness permeating the world disrupting the ability to exist as Human (available to those who ask). She runs Tay in the Water Podcast, where she narrates lessons of survival, highlighting conversations around working with spirits, Black gender, Hoodoo, Islam, spiritual warfare, apocalypse commentary, astrology, and more.

Tay was featured on multiple outlets including Buzzfeed for the “White People Stay Colonizing” presentation that went viral late 2016 and became a TEDx Speaker years ago at the age of 17 for “Revolutionary Self-Produced Justice”. Around the same time, she founded Queer Ummah: A Visibility Project, internationally highlighting narratives of LGBTQ+ Muslims. Tay has served as a keynote speaker at Portland State University, Albion College, Fellowship of Reconciliation Seabeck Conference, presented at the “nation”’s largest racial justice conference Facing Race, Creating Change, presented for panels at Amnesty International and University of North Carolina Charlotte, and more. Her written works can be found across Black Youth Project, Root Work Journal, and within her very own site platform. Workshops and services are also partially offered through Integrative Empowerment Group in Southeastern Michigan. Part of her work has been in affiliation with Muslim Youth Leadership Council of Advocates for Youth (ending early 2019) and being a main organizer of southeast Michigan’s Islamic Healing Space of A2 & Ypsi.

All priority for the work she performs, as well as her mere presence, goes to unambiguously Black communities first.

Some of Tay's speaking engagement + workshop topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Black queer spirit-led militancy

  • Black Ancestor babies, parenthood, and rejecting the faux-anti-capitalist shaming of childbirth

  • Islam as a spirit science + Black Muslim spiritualism

  • Jinn, other non-human creatures, and the violence of human supremacy

  • “Decolonizing faith” // “Spirit work is your work”: Building upon the way we already work with spirits in our day-to-day

  • Relationships as Black queer spirit-led military alliances

  • Utilizing Conjure and African Traditional Religions as systems and tools for liberation
