For the #ClimateMarch, I was given the instructions from NGOs and non-profits to create a collapsible art piece, such as a banner or parachute to display the connected Indigenous struggles of #BlackMesa and #StandingRock.

My piece was a middle finger to those parameters because Indigenous history and struggle will not be collapsible or relegated to a predetermined space, especially on our own land.

Much to the dismay of the NGO's and non-profits typical to these self congratulatory mass mobilizations which are often rife with such hollow and often traitorous messaging such as, #KeepItInTheGround, my installation addressed some of the root causes of climate change on OUR continent - #Colonization, #Genocide and #Racism.

The giant arrows protruding from this vehicle of death represents our historical response as Indigenous people to colonization. Each arrow was categorized into ideas, actions and values and had subsequent messaging for each arrow such as, Retribution, Reparations, Sovereignty and Feminize(glittered). The pièce de résistance was the special effects of fire and smoke billowing out of the covered wagon as it rolled from the United States Capitol down Pennsylvania Avenue towards the White House.

"In terms of the art, it's addressing colonialism. It's addressing genocide. It's addressing racism... This country was built upon the genocide of one race and the enslavement of another.

I'm not here to march for anybody...my people have marched for white people for a long time in not the best ways, look at Ft. Sumner.

Standing Rock would've happened regardless. It wasn't for lack of solar panels. It wasn't for lack of wind turbines. It's for the lack of compassion in terms of what Indigenous peoples have gone through...it was historical colonial violence." #Colonization #Genocide #Racism #MayDay #Dine' #Navajo #Art #Artist #ArtWork #Artivist #Artivism #Activist #Activism #ActivistLife #StreetArt #StreetArtist #StreetArtistry #StreetArtEverywhere #Stencil #StencilArt #Engineer #Designer #Paint #FirstSevenDesignLabs #17DL #TheIndianProblem #PCM2017 #PCMArts #UptownArtHouse #ClimateMarch

Ahéhee' to the University of South Dakota for inviting me to present, share skills and build community. This was a banner workshop with African and Indigenous students and organizations.

Dalam hanyut kau jatuh.

Terdengar satu panggilan sayu yang pernah mengetuk hati kau.

Lantas kau menjengah.

Dan ya. Kau disambut mulia.

Terasa seperti dahulu. Tiada derita.
