To be Indigenous, to honor our ancestors and our incredibly resilient DNA means we have the responsibility to defend our right to exist at all cost.
It’s pretty simple we are mothers and fathers, we are sisters and brothers, we are daughters and we are sons, we are relatives and all we want is to live on the land as our ancestors intended. Our work comes out of the love we have for life, for the plants that provide oxygen, for our water sustaining us and making up nearly 70% of our bodies, for the earth that provides our foundation, for the animals that give so willingly to humans, and for the natural order.
Due to the way, the system of America was set-up, it hurt our identity and created a narrative meant to progress settler-colonialism. With our resistance and coming together as a community we are reversing those atrocities and are working on creating a world that honors Indigenous existence.
Our 6th annual celebration is bringing many community members together to provide a virtual experience during this time of social distancing.
