Throwback Thursday: Kandia Crazy Horse @ Indigenous Day of Remembrance NYC 10/9/16

Once again, we had a great day out at this event sponsored by the Eagle & Condor Community Center of Astoria, Queens, NY — despite the rains, which seemed to clear when the little Quechua girls of Ñukanchik Llakta Wawakuna started dancing. This year’s theme was focused on women & we Native women warriors; I sang one of my songs, about being a Virginia Native American sacred wild woman, “Bury My Heart In Rock Creek Park,” danced in the circle, and participated in ceremonies including the burning of the “Doctrine of the Discovery” as pictured below. Photos of me by my sisters-in-struggle Melissa Terra Makuriwa Ulto (Taina) & Alexis Stern.
