  • [Trigger warning: self-harm] What a crazy, terrifying experience to share so much of myself and my work at @tedxminneapolis. This past year has been challenging and it continues to grow me in different ways. This talk is a part of my healing; opening up and sharing with others some of the deepest and darkest parts of myself and overcoming through my life’s work is an important part of the process. When we heal ourselves, we heal a community ✨ [Full talk at link in bio]

  • Slängde upp kameran för att få en bild, oskarp råkade det bli i farten. Dessa barn i stammen, wow. Detta är Ingri, ett av fem barn vid den familjen vi fick bo hos. Ingri är den flicka som jag blivit mest fascinerad och rörd av. En oerhörd kärlek samt modighet att våga vara sig själv men framförallt att koppla ihop andra barn och äldre. (Gråta eller vara gnällande fanns inte hos denna flicka, istället var hon den som tog hand och konstant lekte med sin 3 år yngre ständigt gnällande och gråtandes bror. Så mycket kramar och sitta i knä har jag aldrig sett eller fått ta del av. Vilket var oerhört vackert och värmande att få se och ta del av som gäst i deras stam.

  • During the day, the Open Door shelter is a refuge for many of Montreal's disproportionately large Indigenous homeless population. • Despite being forced to move, the shelter appears to have landed on its feet. • "I try to carve every day, but sometimes we run out of stones," says John Awa, who learned to carve soapstone from his uncle in Pond Inlet, Nunavut. • Awa has spent the last 11 years in Montreal - and until recently, much of it living rough on the streets. • "I actually got an apartment through the open door housing program," he told APTN News. • Even though the Open Door shelter helped get him his own place, Awa still comes here to work. • At the old location, carvers were forced to work outside - now he can work here year round, inside. • For more on John Awa and the Open Door shelter, visit aptnnews.ca🗞️ • Photo: @tfennario / APTN • • • #photooftheday #carving #indigenous #art #shelter #montreal #quebec #soapstone

  • 🐾 Unique Pair of Kuna-made Mola Boots ✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🐝 See link in bio to purchase & scroll down for story of the boots 🐝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also note...as the boots are created from original & handmade weavings, there are no replicas, duplicates, or even the same design in a different size...🙊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, if you see a boot you like, know that it is the only one (There’s some more info below...) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🌿 Origin and tradition of the Kuna’s ‘Molas’ 🌿 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a tribe called the Kuna, who are indigenous to Panama, the women hold a long tradition of weaving beautiful yarns, known as ‘molas’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The tribe are currently undergoing as relocation back to the mainland of Panama, owing to rising water levels on the San Blas islands. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As such their ways, their traditions and their homes are under threat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have supported the Kuna by investing in their traditional fabrics, meaning that the women of the tribe are able to better support their families and the young women of the tribe may feel it worth while to carry on the old ways. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #olotule #artisan #kuna #indigenous #boots #consciousclothing #fairtradefashion

  • Sage. What is Sage? Sage is considered a sacred herb that has been used as one of the oldest and purest methods of cleansing a person, group or space. The benefits of burning sage can be harnessed by burning it in your home, office or any space in need of cleansing. When burning Sage be as elaborate as you can for it is of the highest importance that your intention be clear before you begin. Sage relaxes senses and relieves sadness, it’s a natural antiseptic, boosts circulation and stimulates skin but best of all, it spiritually cleanses a space/person of bad energy.

  • Another mixed-media collage mindmap. In honor of the Climate Strike today, an easily doable ancient solution to alleviate waste. No, that’s not a cigarette or a joint. The only smoke I like is incense. Indigenous people of the world have solved how to live symbiotically on earth thousands of years ago. Most of us brush our teeth with what is often known as miswak. The miswak (miswaak, siwak, sewak, Arabic: سواك‎ or مسواك) is a teeth cleaning twig made from the Salvadora persica tree (known as arāk, أراك, in Arabic) So you don’t need to use plastic or all these fancy “eco” tooth brushes and tooth paste tubes that contributes to climate change. The people with the most beautiful whitest smiles in Africa have been using miswak forever. Save some money, save the environment that we are a part of, save ourselves. No one is going to save us. Save yourself folks. . . . . #climatestrike #artprocess #selfcare #mixedmediaart #artactivism #indigenous #miswak #conceptualart #art #mindmap

  • “The Huichol are an indigenous people who live in remote areas surrounded by the Sierra Madre Mountains in the Jalisco & Nayarit states. Their isolation has protected them from most Western influence, keeping their ancient traditions & beliefs intact through the centuries. However, economic constraints have forced the Huichol people out of their remote areas & into busier cities to sell their works.their namesake is derived from the word Wirriarika, which translates to soothsayer or medicine man in their language. Their traditions are seeped in religion mostly based on the trinity of deer, corn & peyote. Deer & corn were their primary sources for food & peyote is held sacred in their culture due to its hallucinogenic properties that give shaman visions.Each year, Huichol families, individuals & shaman take pilgrimage to the desert area of San Luis Potosí in order to worship & commune with the deities. During their journey, shaman will take peyote & replicate their visions onto nierikas small discs or boards with a hole or mirror in the center. The nierikas represent the religious communication between the Huichol people & the deities, & would be left in a cave or temple as an offering to the gods.The significance of this pilgrimage & the deities is represented in the decorations of almost everything the Huichol create. The “yarn paintings” are commercialized versions of nierikas. The decorated masks & candles imitate the sacred items they offer to their deities.Since their written language was only recently developed, the symbols were the Huichol people’s primary form of communication & continue to preserve their sacred traditions myths & religion.” . . #puertovallarta #jalisco #mexico #mexico🇲🇽 #ilovemexico #visitmexico #mextagram #Huichol #huicholart #méxico #art #artlovers #indigenous #artislife #artistic #travel #wanderlust #travelmexico

  • A few images from the past two days of musical & cultural outreach at Sussex School. For many years I taught their 7th grade whitewater kayaking program & I try to visit this school at least once a year to reconnect with students. The 3rd & 4th graders asked mindful questions & requested an encore of Didjeridu beatboxing & my rendition of indigenous Aboriginal Australian dream time dance... My soul is feeling really nourished in this short amount of time in the community stemming from time in the classroom. Thanks Sussex! 🌏 #ChildrenAreOurGreatestNaturalResource

  • In my reindigenizing journey I've tried to also study European indigenous groups even though they are in a completely different climactic zone. There are several important lessons that I've learned. (1) The people who attempted genocide in the Caribbean and Africa would have targeted their own indigenous groups first, (2) It helps me uncover my own stereotypes about indigenous lifestyles by seeing indigenous expression in cold places and (3) Indigenous cultures in distant places may manifest differently but they are built on very similar underlying philosophical ideas - connection with non-human forms of life, childhood autonomy, high amounts of leisure time, minimal hierarchy, and more. The Sami is an indigenous group spread across northern Scandanavia and Russia. This page - @colourmypast - has multiple photos of Sami people from the 1800's. There's also a good film Sami Blood that's definitely worth watching. Sami people experience high suicide rates, oppression from Scandanavian governments and are forced to abandon their nomadic lifestyle. Thank goodness indigenous people world wide are consolidating to halt the encroachment of industrial civilization. #sami #indigenous #samipeople #reindigenize #decolonize #indigenoussolidarity

  • Here are more Yule facts for you. you’ve ever heard the 🎼🎺🎹🎸 Christmas Carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas” modern pagans opt to celebrate this as the Twelve Days of Yule, with the last day culminating on 12th Night. Since ancient calendars followed a different method of time, the solstice celebrations as well as later 🎄‘Christmasy’ style observances can vary from place to place as to when they occur. Today, most Pagans or indigenous people celebrate the yuletide as running from approximately December 20 – December 31 (but there are variations).
