We of the Eastern Nations in NYC / the Tri-State area are standing in solidarity with Standing Rock today for the National Day of Action. Check your local groups for opportunities to participate. I did prayerful advance marching with the Ramapough Lunaape Nation clan mothers & their Chief Dwaine Perry who came into Manahata from New Jersey on Sunday. We proceeded from Columbus Circle up through Central Park where we held the circle & performed water ceremonies prior to the Supermoon rise. I have been invited to sing in support & be of service at the Ramapough Lunaape water protector camp @ Split Rock in future & look forward to it. Many of us indigenous activists of the NY / NJ / CT area are committed to stopping Spectra, the Algonquin Pipeline, & halting any other pipeline projects that arise in the Northeast. As Sister Davidica Little Spotted Horse of the Oglala Lakota told us last week, the goal is for folks to attend to the black snakes in their own backyard rather than everyone converging on Standing Rock – still we have much to learn from the Oceti Sakowin & remain strong in solidarity with them as they defend The Mother – A’ho* #IStandWithStandingRock & #SplitRock #StandingRockNationalDayOfAction #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth #mniwiconi #NoDAPL #NoAIM #LoveWaterNotOil

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.
