Montañita, or Monti (He/Him/Él), is a transgender champurria, or mixed race Indigenous Andean and Hispanic person. He grew up in diaspora from the city of Santiago where his family still resides, in the Andes mountains of Mapuche territory in South America.

He is the founder and CEO of Transgod, the world's first and only transgender streetwear brand redefining transgenderhood, and offers public speaking, training, consulting, and grant writing services.

Monti has a degree in Communication from Ithaca College, where he studied historical and contemporary media and culture, sociology, psychology, sex and gender. He has since been following Indigenous research practices to study decolonization efforts, technology, and trans theory.
