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.

Indigenous Day of Remembrance 2016 in NYC

Annually, I represent for my Pamunkey Ancestors, my dear mother who has walked on & kin @ the Indigenous Day of Remembrance, which is held in Central Park across from Columbus Circle (which contains the statue of the Italian explorer). I am part of the movement to have the Indigenous Day ratified nationally, as part of my activism in Indian Country & beyond. Join us in ceremonies next Sunday the 9th — after my Sacred Water Medicine Show benefit for Standing Rock on Saturday night, 10/8 — @ noon by the 59th Street entrance to the Park (across from Time Warner Center). I will be there, along with my good friends Behike Luis Ramos & Brooke Keiahani Rodriguez, Taino leaders of Eagle & Condor Community Center in Queens who sponsor the event & have been active with me in the Dakota Access Pipeline resistance – A’ho*
