Indigenous Resistance

You cannot DNA Hispanic... Latin is a dead language not an ethnicity

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Professor Enid Conley from Johnson & Wales University. I was connected with her by a Ute elder, Kenny Frost.

Mama Said Knock You Out Benefit: Mamas of Color Rising "Assisting the Birthing of a Movement"

Tonight was an amazing time! I spent the night volunteering at (and enjoying) the Mamas of Color Rising benefit for the Sankofa Birth Companion Project I will be participating in. The mamas linked forces with Detroit based artist Invincible and organized an all women in hip hop showcase at Austin's historic Victory Grill.

After the Round dance...

After the round dance (4am), I received the chance to interview two youth round dance singers, Fidel Wounded Head and Quinn Benally. They were very shy and when I interviewed them there were a bunch of other round dance singers watching. Big ups to these two singers for holding it down being interviewed when everyone else was scared to. The Above pic is of my homeboy Wayne and Giovanni from Ft. Hall!!! One Love!

In Mourning and Prayer for all of our brothers and sisters, babies and elders in Japan and Across Pachamama

With the deepest love and prayers for our families in Japan and all across Pachamama...


in the eye of Pachamama's anger,

Yemaja's turmoil,

Creator's warnings,

ancestors scolding,

and corporate media lies and ongoing poison -


our hearts and minds fall into dark places,

with no traces

of hope or joy or strength to keep holding up
