The Intertribal Friendship House along with the Indigenous Permaculture Project and SNAG Magazine hosted an Indigenous Holiday Market and Concert on December 5th. Jesus and I were asked to table by our very good friend and organizer extraordinaire Nikol Trujillo. We were so incredibly inspired by all of the elders, youth, community and artists who participated. Some of the people who made the night so memorable included Sista Hailstorm “southern native warrior,” Leslie Lopez and Visual Element of EastSide Arts Alliance, Carla Perez, the Robinson Pomo dancers, Sage Romero’s hoop dancing, Brwn Bflo and the Jeremy Goodfeather. Overall, what was most powerful was having a space for Bay Area Indian and Indigenous people to come together and share our creativity and our culture in order to sustain ourselves.
Above is a short video that was produced by another good friend and fierce filmmaker Barni Qaasim.
