Finally finished these earrings after almost two years! They’re not perfect but I looove wearing them because they remind me of all the people who encouraged and taught me to bead.

💞You have to look deeper, way below the anger, the hurt, the hate, the jealousy, the self-pity, way down deeper where the dreams lie, son. Find your dream. It's the pursuit of the dream that heals you.

I wish we would have taken more photos of this beautiful gathering but being in that moment with our brothers and sisters was a memory that we will cherish forever. From Canada to South America, we are all one people, we are all Indigenous and we stand with #NODAPL because if you mess with one of us then you mess with us all. We are not a minority and United we show them just that. The words of our Apache sister brought us to tears because she sees the struggle in our peoples eyes. She sees that we want to know more about who we truly are. Most Chicano/Chicanas do not know our land and the specific indigenous cultures we belong to because that was taken away from us by the Spanish. I just wanted to let you all know that it's okay, we are still indigenous and we have a home in the arms of our people, from all of our indigenous cultures. So Chicanos and Chicanas stay strong, we are all lost together and we find each other in battle for liberation. Ometeotl. #NODAPL#1491Resistance#panIndigenous#americanindianmovement
Getting social at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair.

Yep, the culture is here. Strong and alive! Xingu ethnicities celebrating the Kuarup. Kuarup is a funeral ritual that happens yearly in order to homage the indigenous people deceased during this period of time. Tree trunks are adorned and placed in the
middle of the tribe and represent those who are gone.
The deceased families spend the whole night around these trunks crying and praying for their loved ones. 🇧🇷 A cultura está aqui. Forte e viva! Etnias xinguanas celebrando o Kuarup. O Kuarup é um ritual fúnebre que ocorre anualmente para homenagear os indígenas mortos nesse período. Troncos de madeira são enfeitados e colocados no centro do pátio da aldeia e representam aqueles que se foram.
A família dos homenageados passam a noite em volta desses troncos, chorando e orando pelos familiares. 🔜Workshop fotografando Não Modelos: primeira vez em Recife!

PRESERVING AND VALUING INDIGENOUS CULTURE 🌿
Indigenous peoples have held a distinct relationship with the land far before European colonization. It is a holistic approach based on harmony and balance. This unique relationship to the land differs from the Western notion of property ownership and privatization. It is critical to note that Indigenous peoples have been harmed by community development historically as they have been the on the receiving end (Ife, 2016). That is why it is important to acknowledge the different worldviews of land and work to value and preserve Indigenous culture though community development activities like community gardening. #communitygardens#ccd#Indigenousculture
Concepcion Huista lies in the highlands of Huehuetenango in northwestern Guatemala. It is here that our Fair Trade/Organic Guatemala Coffee is produced by small acre farmers, members of the CODECH cooperative.⠀
Many of the farmers are also Mam, indigenous people who have worked this land dating back to the pre-Columbian period, when they were part of the early Mayan civilization. Here you see two Mam families in their colorful, traditional dress. Of note, this attire is commonly worn for the work day on the farm!⠀
