Poe was two-spirit. He was reportedly stabbed and his body dumped in a canal after being sexually assaulted.

Oliver Jackson, also known by the names Poe Black, Legion or as Tommi by his family, was a transgender, two-spirit relative. He was 21 years old and originally grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. He was murdered in Southern California sometime during the month of May.

His body was dumped in a canal near Slab City, California. He had been sexually assaulted and stabbed to death.

During his life he had suffered so much for the causes of justice for native people, for black people, for LGBT people, and anyone who needed to be stood up for. He was truly loved and he truly loved people.

He was a warrior.
