Courtney "Deva" Porter

Courtney goes by Viva la Deva (which means, "Long live the goddess") and everything she does is in alignment with this mantra. Artist, environmental & birthing justice activist via Urban Naturalist's Association and Earth Mama's Birthing Services, the Gary Indiana native, is currently the lead jewelry artist and proprietor of Nubian Naturals Jewelry and Healing based in Indianapolis.

Deva pairs her love to create with her heart for her community by hosting a variety of free community engagement workshop via Amore Arts, an up and coming organization. You can check out and commission her work by visiting her shop at This and her workshops help to support her holistic initiatives to create a stronger more sufficient community.

Recent projects via Urban Naturalist's Association include hosted outtings, workshops and community service/engagement projects to better engage with, learn from, protect and serve, nature. We hope to inspire a connection with Mother Earth and become better stewards of urban environments and our world at large.
