“Unceded Kinship: Land, Place and People”. An Exhibition At The University Of Oregon June 1st-Sept. 9th

My (3) Art Prints and more will be on display at the University Of Oregon Knight Library, Circulation Lobby June 1st-September 9th 2022

🌿Thank you @melaninmvskoke for inviting me to this important engagement🌿

“Unceded Kinship: Land, Place and People seeks to honor the past, present, and future of Native and Afro descendent peoples by restoring and reviving our relationship to one another and to the natural world. Through holding and regarding kinship, solidarity, and community as sacred. By refusing the narratives of erasure, dehumanization, and subjugation. Finally, by envisioning a future rooted in Black Liberation and Indigenous Sovereignty! 

In partnership with UO Common Reading, Amber Starks (aka Melanin Mvskoke), University and Community stakeholders, and the University of Oregon Libraries, the Unceded Kinship art exhibition showcases Afro descendent and Native artists with connections to Oregon and their respective communities.  Unceded Kinship is a celebration of these artists contributions to the movements of Black Liberation and Indigenous Sovereignty and explores the ongoing conversations within and across Afro descendent and Native communities around decentering white supremacy and settler colonialism.  The exhibition personifies ways in which Native and Afro descendant peoples have built community and invested in kinship. 

The exhibition asserts that both movements are compatible technologies of resistance and futurity, and is a reminder that Native and Afro descendent peoples have always been the authors and architects of their liberation.  Ultimately, Unceded Kinship: Land, Place and People affirms the future for both peoples outside of oppression and subjugation, a future envisioned and built for them, by them!”


Tea Brings Time To A Crawl


I rarely illustrate morbid work. 
I will not explain this drawing. 
The way I see it. It’s self explanatory. 
The problem in this country: 
Too many people are killing. 
Too many people are talking. 
Too many people are manipulating. 
Too many people are hurting. 
And nobody’s listening. 

This tragedy will be in history books. 
This will NEVER be forgotten. 
Government officials are trying to cancel truth in history. 
Not Today. 
Not Ever.

 Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury effects people differently.

Mine is complicated and unstable.

According to “American Congress Of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM)”, the benefits of Art therapy:
🔥Lowers cortisol levels
🔥Improves focus
🔥Can be cathartic & improve self-understanding

🔥Help predict and make decisions
🔥Fosters self expression; great for rehabilitation”

It seems my path will be dedicated to Art for the rest of my life Facebook Peeps.

Keep your eyes peeled for Art posts, as I try my best to navigate this newfound disability.

Teamed With "IllumiNative" for Mother's Day Campaign


🥰Happy Mother’s Day Everyone🥰
🪶Artist Statement:
My mother used to say “women are “co-creators of life and keepers of time, through our bodies.”
Like all children, this youth represents purity and kindness.
She reflects in the brilliance of diversity (flower) with no bias or judgment.
In this act, she is rewarded with a memory (necklace/medallion) of her innocence and for the time of her life.
She is the promise of her generation, the hope. Instilled in this child are the qualities of respect, tolerance, strength, equality, and understanding, this is her birth right. These teachings have been passed down through all generations.
She has the honor of harmony with Mother Earth and therefore a desire to protect us all.
In her transformation, as a young adult, she reflects on herself (dancer) flourishing between tradition and modern society.
She is the bridge. Her markings, worn to face the world, represent the challenges to be heard and a constant fight for respect as an independent woman. She continues this journey throughout her coming years.
In the end, or beginning, her culmination of experiences is represented by the mother of all women (elder) who guides in purity and kindness. She watches over us and the generations to come so that we all can live a better life.
