✊✊✊ repost from @indigenousunited An indigenous woman will be running for president of Mexico in 2018. Mexico hasn't have a indigenous president since Benito Juarez and that was over 130 years ago. The National Indigenous Congress, with the support of the Zapatista National Liberation Army (EZLN) consulted with 43 indigenous communities, and agreed to form an indigenous council for government which will have as a spokesperson, and Indigenous woman. The 66 indigenous communities that are part of the National Indigenous Congress decided to struggle collectively, for another way of doing politics and for the right to live. The campaign will focus on defending land rights, and resisting violence from narco trafficking.

I'm here in Eastman and I have actually one thought coming to me when I am seeing these mountains. I cant wait for next sweat lodge to feel the land inside of my body, wherever it can be. And listening to the deep whispers of ancient memories. #eastman #quebec #indigenous #innu #mountains #clouds #rainydays #sweatlodge #feel #land #body #whispers #ancient #memories #ancestors #spirits #nature #natural

I wrote No DAPL during the most heated time of the protest. When the Army Corps of Engineers made the decision to stop the building of the Pipe Line it really felt like a victory...but like always we were miss led and some new that so they stayed at the camp...they were forcibly removed military style in febuary...Donald Trump had the most funding in campaign history funded by big corperations that build these pipe lines...so it's no surprise one of the first things he does is reverse the decision and get the DAPL up and running...not legally or threw the proper procedures...I feel this is the best time to release this song because the buzz has died down as the investors also own the media and are doing there best to hide everything...we really need to stand together against these evil corperations that don't respect our mother earth...💪🌲🌳 #NativeHipHop #waterislife #standingrock #indigenous #cree #canadianhiphop #toronto #nativepride #honour #respect #motherearth #renuable #video #firstnations #art #rap #aboriginal #music #NewMusic #youtube #soundcloud #climate #environment #climatechange #airquality #cleanenergy #nodapl #cleanwater #musicvideo

We had an amazing meeting with Mary-Anne Neal, M.Ed. last week. She shared her story of traveling to the Canadian North when she was 19 years old and feeling drawn back there by the Indigenous people she met. 45 years later she went back and helped the local people put their stories to paper in this book. If you are working in industry in the area and think your corporation could help fund future volumes...let's connect you. #greatwhitenorth #dene #sahtu #colvillelake #fortgoodhope #tulita #deline #normanwells #nwt #canada🇨🇦 #hope #pride #indigenous #aboriginal

There is no real agreement on what the palaces were actually used for. Rulers and other elite might have lived in them, although the rooms are cramped and spartan. Archaeologists suggest that nobles were more likely to have lived in less permanent buildings which haven't survived. Archaeologists also suggest that the cell-like rooms of the palaces could indicate that monks, nuns or priests lived there, although there is little evidence of ecclesiastical or monastic orders among the ancient Maya. In some regions, groundwater was scarce, and large cities like Tikal would have had large man-made reservoirs to service their populations during the dry season. Many Maya sites had ball courts; others had sweat baths, possibly adopted from Mexico. Important cities also had multiple stelae or pillars placed in the stucco floors of plazas, usually facing important temples and palaces. The stelae were sometimes on platforms, supporting temple-pyramids, and usually had a low, round flat-topped altar in front of them. Typical Maya architectural features included the corbel vault and the roof comb. The corbel vault has no keystone, as European arches do, making the Maya vault appear more like a narrow triangle than an archway. It has been suggested that this unusual form exists because the Maya never mastered keystone technology. Others suggest that the lack of keystone was deliberate: the Maya vault always had nine stone layers, representing the nine layers of the Underworld. A keystone would have created a tenth layer, outside the Maya cosmology. The Maya roof comb was a lattice of stone added despite the height of the temple-pyramids. Perhaps Maya architects didn't feel the temples were grand enough, and so added an upper extension. The roof comb was always highly decorated with painted stucco reliefs, as was the temple facade. Equally decorated were the doorways, doorjambs and facades of many other Maya structures, which were ornamented with heavy carving in stone or wood. #maya #mayas #aztec #aztecs #palenque #chiapas #olmec #olmecs #moundbuilders #peru #taino #indigenous #indigenouspride #indigenouspeoples #native #nativepride #nativeamerican #mexico #guatemala

I call this a #Mexican energy #horse. It's inspired by the traditional #indigenous art.
"Las Etnias" (The Ethnicities) was commissioned for the 2016 Summer Olympics and features men and women from five indigenous groups throughout the world: Mursi (Ethiopia), Kayin (Thailand), Supi (Europe), Huli (Papua New Guinea), and Tapajos (Americas). Kobra worked with his team of four artist to complete the beautiful wall in only one month. Wow!
People always ask why they call me Chip I gotta story if you wanna sit When my mom was alone She spied a large block stone She wanted a baby boy but no one would help So in a villige full of idiots she climbed  that rock by herself Stuck in the rain with hammer in hand She carved herself a little boy man Piece by piece, she'd break off a bit And that tiny piece of block became Chip Carved in the image of an evil man But the Creator knew Ma would teach this one understand #indigenous #nativeman #native #nativewomen #nativelove #love #myname #hiphop #nativehiphop #iwrotethisshit #mymamamademe #FirstNations

👴🏾👦🏽 Tuesday's office for Kaizi & Solomon with an abundance of coconuts in sight ready to be picked. Far North Queensland is well known for its many seasonal fruits including mangoes, lychees, dragonfruit, longans & watermelons. Coconuts are also amoung these tropical fruits!! 🌴🌴🌴🌴
Being a bridge means seeing the ways to celebrate what threads run through us all. 🌈Grade 1-3 from the Catholic school here. My favourite quote from this group was after they smudged. Some hadn't done it before and some had. When I asked them how it felt, they expressed that it felt good, they felt better. One little girl... blonde hair, blue eyes exclaimed with all her might (and almost with a southern twang) "it felt like I was being BLESSED by the LAWRD!" 🙌🏾🌿🙌🏾 it took all my will to not bust a gut laughing because it was so cute and so powerful. Right from the depths of her toes did she express this to our circle. "That's Beautiful!" I said to her. Smiling from ear to ear. 🌿 kids know truth and they speak truth. No matter how we name it, spiritual experience is spiritual experience. I'm going to learn a lot from the kids in the next few weeks. It's time to move into a place of the heart. Roots and faith have a home on Earth when it sprouts from the heart. Stay tuned for more stories from the circle. ❤️ . . . . . . . #indigenousyogini #circle #heal #healing #catholic #buildabridge #ihavecometobuildabridge #indigenous #dene #love
I wasn't exaggerating when i said this #mural ("Etnias") is massive. It is! It's actually the world's largest #sprayart work on an outdoor wall at 30,000sq ft and 50ft tall. I included an average human in this photo for reference.

On May 27, 1967, Australians voted in a referendum to change how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people were referred to in the Constitution. On the Rights Wrongs website you can explore personal stories, opinions and historical recordings of what happened. How far have we come since 1967? Link in bio. Thanks to Bruce Pascoe for the spoken words. The #RightWrongs website is a partnership between ABC, AIATSIS and NSLA. #Indigenous #RightWrongs #1967 #yesvote #referendum
In the news today, the Liberal/National Coalition government has approved an alternate version of the Australian national anthem without 'young and free' as it might offend some Aboriginal people #australia #anthem #freespeech #pcbrigade #pcgonemad #indigenous #aboriginal #auspol

"This is the first time I've ever seen a girl hold a drum, and TEACH the songs.... eh... your real good eh... like, your voice is real strong n' your good... REAL good" (smiling) "hiy hiy" 🌿🌿🌿 circles with Young Dene boys (these two wanted to be in a picture). They went from being shy, and a couple of them a bit disrespectful, but I'd call it uncomfortable with a woman holding the drum to eyes wide, ears open, listening to the teachings, loving the songs, smiles on their faces, and requesting to sing one they loved twice. "So... is this a regular thing then?" One of the boys asked. It's incredible what happens when we sit down together and just have a conversation, let the tools lead us to a place where we remember mutual respect, honour, prayer, humility, joy, truth, and love for ourselves and one another. It doesn't matter if your woman or man, we all need good medicine and our youth need the tools to help them through their struggles. I respect the ways of others and I will pray to the Creator in the way that my heart leads me to. When we can come into oneness... we have transcended past sex, race, age, status... and all other things that can be used to separate us. We are meant to love and respect eachother. Today, in this circle, we came from different teachings but still we're able to pray together in respect - and gosh darn, there was even laughter... imagine that. Imagine our world when we come together like this 🌸👊🏽 . . . . . . . . #indigenousyogini #drum #circle #heal #healing #traditional #dene #indigenous #wakantanka #imagine

I've been reading a lot about the history of one of my Iwi, Taranaki lately. I've written some music and drawn / painted some art... this snippet of an ink on paper is in response to some stuff I read about Parihaka. There's a few more in this series...

Little bro rocking the @goodhyouman gear. Extremely proud of this little dude for coming a long way and overcoming the challenges of a child who battles Autism. I admire him for attending school 8 hours and coming home to 3 hours of therapy everyday. His strength and willingness to learn is astounding and his knowledge in his alphabets from english to russian is truly amazing! Proud of this little guy for staying strong and inspiring us everyday. Keep up the great work little bro, I always have your back 💕 #goodhyouman #autismawareness #navajo #indigenous

Gotta love those moments when the team has planned to teach at a well-off charter school & then the bus takes you to a small inner-city school... ❤️🇪🇨 We love the kids equally of course, but the logistics of our original plan needed some very last minute tweaking in order to suit this environment better! In addition, we had planned for 5 small groups and ended up only having 3-school translators. #FlexibilityIsKey #LostInTranslation #GodKnowsWhatHesDoing
