  • When did we stop being the star people ? ✨✨✨✨ Stayed on Navajo lands last week in an eco retreat. Navajo people call themselves Diné, which simply means ‘people’ in their language (they don’t especially appreciate being called Navajo as it is a Spanish invented word). We were blessed to be offered their ceremonial home to stay at, a traditional hogan, a living being they explained who witnessed generations of their people being born and die, suffer and be healed and families come together to honor and celebrate Mother Earth and each other. There is no floor in it, it is the red earth that we walk on, that we owe our physical existence to. They believe that the hogan chooses people who are to stay in it. Hogan has an opening in the middle and we could see the stars from our beds. We are not the star people anymore, since we chose to enclose ourselves in-between the walls that have no soul. We are afraid of being exposed to the sun, rain and wind, hiding beneath our synthetic clothing and from each other... #worldnowadays

[In 1863 COL Kit Carson displaced the Navajo from Canyon de Chelly by burning their homes and destroying their food supply in an act of state sanctioned ethnic cleansing. Today the National Park Service works with the Navajo Nation to manage the land which has been continuously occupied for 5,000 years. Visitors can enjoy guided trips, hiking, scenic drives and primitive campsites.] . . . Tag #MelaninBaseCamp for a feature and help bridge #TheAdventureGap. Join the movement and #DiversifyOutdoors!

  • Trying to get the hang of digital drawing and media. Completed this piece in honor of all my strong Diné asdząąn (Navajo women). From Shimá (my mother), to Shimasaní (my maternal grandmother) and Shinalí asdzą́ą́ (my paternal grandmother), from Shimá yaazh (mother's sisters) to Shibizhí (father's sisters), and especially to Shideezhi (my little sisters) and my cousins who all have had an enormous role in my development from when I was little until now. To those who have enveloped me in love, and discipline. To those who experience hardships, loneliness, trauma. I love you all. #diné #navajo #navajowomen #navajoland #drawing #graphicdesign #nativeamerican
