Very happy to have received my first copy of @thecherokeephoenix by mail. I celebrate my people from afar. And bonus excitement for a feature on natives in the arts on the cover page. The universe knows what's up! #ᎠᎵᎮᎵᏍᏗ#ᎤᏓᏍᎦᏍᏓᏁᏗᏱ#native#nativeamerica#nativeamericans#aniyunwiya#iamcherokee#tsalagi#urbannative#nativepride#themoreyouknow#knowledgeispower#sundayfunday#pool#reading
Yesterday was full. @alicebyheart.mcc iss imaginative and features an INCREDIBLE cast and many amazing physical theatre moments. @lynnnottage play By The Way, Meet Vera Stark is a powerful piece shining light on racial stereotypes in Hollywood that go all the way back to 1930s. We still have work to do. Thank you @bananarichter and @rhargrov for the magic moments of friendship in between the shows!
Last night to cap a lovely day in NYC @kunyarowleytenor and I went to see Chrous Line cast members just back from tour performing their cabaret #OffTheLine@thegreenroom42 And this soon-to-be-superstar @tdoelg was shining so bright on stage!!! Thanks for the hug and hello after. It was great seeing you perform live- last time was at the Kennedy Center!!!
Part two of this amazing day included meeting up with @nikbentel at the New Museum where he is an artist in residence. After learning about his projects and seeing the amazing spaces he works in - exploring the museum was in order. I was moved by the exhibit by @jeffrune Multimedia artist Jeffrey Gibson (b. 1972, Colorado Springs, CO) is the artist-in-residence for the Department of Education and Public Engagement’s Winter/Spring R&D Season: INHERITANCE. Gibson’s exhibition explores the material histories and futures of several Indigenous handcraft techniques and aesthetics, including Southeastern river cane basket weaving, Algonquian birch bark biting, and porcupine quillwork, as practiced by many tribes across this land long before European settlers arrived. #nativeartist#exploring#inspirednatives#gettingmylife
