I captured this shot during a photo shoot for @dancingearth, in which I had the pleasure and honor to dance with such a unique group of beauties. ❤️🌈
“Walking at the Edge of Water” premiered in 2012, and was developed by Director Rulan Tangen through collaborations with cultural artists and community members across Turtle Island. “Water” premiered for Native elders at the SEED Conference in Albuqurque, and had it’s public premier at the Lensic Theater of Santa Fe on Sept 28-29 2012 in celebration of IAIA’s 40th anniversary, and in partnership with Santa Fe Art Institute, The Lensic, National Dance Institute of New Mexico, and additional support from USA Projects.”
“DANCING EARTH’s performance – WALKING AT THE EDGE OF WATER – is an inter-tribal contemporary dance expression of Indigenous water perspectives. Every creative aspect of this eco-production reflects cultural and environmental worldview, with Indigenous collaborators in movement, musical composition, language, video imagery, costume and visual art. This work is motivated by the urgings of Native grandmothers and invokes powerfully relevant water themes of creation, destruction and renewal. WALKING AT THE EDGE OF WATER parallels ancestral healing rituals in a dance of inter-disciplinary Native expressions that is both primal and futuristic.”

I feel incredibly blessed for having such an incredible lineage running through my veins. Ancient DNA = sacred knowledge. You just “know” things. Of the realest kind. Well, some do. Even though I did not grow up with my tribe and am only 50% Pueblo, the connection is strong and very alive.
I’m not bragging, I’m not even prideful, I’m just grateful to be exactly who I am.
Whoever I may be. 🧐🤔🦅👁
