Indigenous Resistance

The Death of A Block- Killed by a Corporate Hospital


We used to be here

Living, working and keeping families near

Then Land and lives were stolen

Through paper trails and legal theft

Wepa, Wepa, Wepa Thats it!

I met Gaby at the From Abortion Rights to Social Justice: Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom at Hampshire College. Her mother was a co-presenter with me on a lecture about community healing. I love meeting women who hold it down for their families, and Mala is at the top of that list. The result she produce is her beautiful daughter Gaby who inspires me to be the authentic self that I am.

Women Are Strong

I met DJ Danforth at a Reproductive Rights Conference that I was a presenter at. I heard him spoke at the Indigenous Peoples Caucus and knew I needed to get a interview with him. I cound out he was part of the Tha Tribe (a Rounddance group) and had to hear a song. I love his perspective on the feminine and masculine!

We Are Taino

I met Orokobix about 5 years ago at the National Day of Mourning Protest in Plymouth, MA. I met him there, and ever since then we have remained connected. So when I went to visit Hartford, CT I had to see Orokobix and his partner Coabey and got schooled on Taino Indian culture. We talked much about the similarities in our culture and ways we were interconnected. PEEP the Video!

Linguistic Domination, and the dissapearing of indigenous Languages/ Interview with Tiny aka Lisa Garcia

In poor magazine we believe in reclaiming our roots, culture and indigenous languages we use the Spanish and English languages at all time, even do at the end they are colonizers languages,Linguistic Domination is the idea that only English and Spanish are the dominant languages.

HOME by Yaiva


HOME is a powerful song from the perspective of a person lost in the urban areas, as many of us Native’s find ourselves in living to survive in the 21st century.


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.
