I got the chance to visit Albuquerque, New Mexico during the weekend. I enjoyed whatever time I had left at Gatherings and ended the night at the Rezilience show. I did not get to attend the Pink Party, but I heard some awesome things about it. Jared from OXDX Clothing was there. I got to meet the actress KDevery Jacobs from Rhymes for Young Ghouls (watch it on NETFLIX). Steven Paul Judd got to do a Q & A. Thosh Collins and Chelsea Luger from Well For Culture did a great job presenting their movement (They have some great workouts and visit their page- there are some delicious recipe meals). The actor Martin Sensmeier from the upcoming film Magnificent 7 was there as well!!! SO, many great artists bringing creativity to a memorable day and for a great cause. I enjoyed the show very much. Here’s a small clip from the REZILIENCE show. I did it for you 🙂
@BeyondBuckskin reminds us of the ongoing battle of non-Native artists that continue to break the Indian Arts and Crafts Act and needs to be reported. Follow @BeyondBuckskin ! She’s a great role model and entrepreneur that has brought out many Native artists artwork onto the market. #buynative
So heres the new scoop. As Gathering of Nations is coming quickly here’s the performance this weekend with Frank Waln and other talented native artists. Also Rose Will rise Again is coming to itunes! Native teen is on Teen Vogue!!!
So I had the pleasure to partake in an art workshop with Steven Paul Judd and attend the screenings on Saturday 16th at the Loft Cinema in Tucson, AZ. Also, got to be on his Instagram 🙂 and TAGGED ME! haha He is a very intricate and humbled artist; we spoke briefly of his art and told me to about how he came up with ‘The Warriors’ skateboard (which he will sell only 100- 50 at Gatherings of Nations and the other 50 online).

The show went really well! Amazed by the Native designers creativity and talents. OXDX Clothing, Un3ek System, and Aconav were a few of my favorites! Definitely check these guys out work, buy their clothes, and support Native Americans! I cannot wait to attend future NFITC events and see more Native arts and designers!

I have got the pleasure of hanging out with Jeff Slim from TheAllElectricKitchen studio in Phoenix, AZ. He showed me around his studio and told me of his inspirations behind some of the paintings. His perspective on cultural appropriation and interpretation of Navajo culture was amazing to listen too. I took a few pictures of his artwork and created a short clip. Enjoy.
