Her work lends voice to the critical and important conversation of California’s First People in relation to place and belonging, offering a lens through the poetics of her life as a California Native woman. Performance, hosting workshops, participating in panels and keynotes are some ways in which Kelly shares her writing and works to educate people on intersecting identities and the history, lives and current achievements of California Native peoples.
"My writing, my voice, is only a vessel for the Spirit of this place to say what needs to be said. As for my own lived experience, I am tethered to and am only continuing a story that has been writing itself for thousands of years." - Kelly Caballero
