Buffalohair: Humanities Pilgrimage: Standing Rock North Dakota

Humanities Pilgrimage: Standing Rock North Dakota

a1-standing-rockStories abound about the Besieged Standing Rock Sioux of North Dakota, their struggle against the Dakota Access Pile Line (DAPL) or ‘Black Snake’ and endless western media prevarications. But while on assignment at the Oceti Sakowin Camp I also found another story. Granted, it was unexpected but it was also hard to ignore for it brought me back to the very essence of my core beliefs. In a way this became my personal pilgrimage.

 

From the moment you approach the Cannonball River one is taken by the size of the encampments on both banks. Then there is the line of traffic waiting to pass the security check point as supporters, supplies and lookie loos pile into camp. You must go through orientation and your credentials verified to acquire a press pass. Only after you met their criteria you are allowed to take videos and photographs in permissible areas with the permissions of the occupants.

 

It is advised you heed the warning about taking photos of sacred sites, camp fires, lodges etc. Though you may fool people and take videos of something sacred on the sly you are not fooling spirits of the spirit world. Everyone is watching you betraying your vow to honor a sacred tradition. And what timing eh. Nothing like doing something completely stupid & disrespectful during a spiritual event of this magnitude for no other reason than you can. How far beyond stupid is that eh?

 

If you are planning a trip to Standing Rock bare in mind this is a budding community not a KOA Camp Ground for this is home to many people who’ve moved to camp permanently. It’s a traditional native community intertwined with societies, clans and private aspects of indigenous life foreign to other cultures. Familiarize yourself with proper protocols and clearly defined tribal precepts of what is hallowed for there are no exceptions to this rule. Just show respect, ask questions, no biggie.

 

Our camp had a majestic view of the spotlights that would shine down onto camp throughout the night. A supporter commented, “Reminds me of the West Bank”, then I noticed the Palestinian flag. It was humbling to note people from around the world who were so driven by compassion they made the pilgrimage to Standing Rock. Through the rigors and excitement of the day a story began to evolve, a story of the human condition.

 

Though people came from many dogmas & ideological principals they understood the deeper significants this joining of cultures has in the grand scheme of things. Where other ‘signs’ were simply ignored or passed off as coincidence, the DAPL – Black Snake Debacle struck a cord within prophetic philosophies around the world. It was good to hear people speaking comfortably about the realities of prophecy, especially from a multi principled perspective.

 

What I found way cool was the younger generation I encountered. These folks were awake, aware and wanting to make a difference for humanities sake. They were up to speed in the issues that mattered. It was great to hear well read and knowledgeable young people sharing their observations in life, motivations and how much they cared for their fellow human beings & Ma Earth. And the skills they offered were off the charts professionally speaking, holay!

 

Various technologies were in review, including innovative housing, holistic medicalOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA and mental health facilities under construction within this sprawling encampment along the Cannon Ball River. I happened onto a yurt building class and was spell bound by this unique structure and it’s simplicity in assembly. But alas I resigned myself to my cousins dilapidated tent that survived a savage wind storm in a previous run to the rez. Some rope, Duct Tape and we were good to go.

 

“Mni Wiconi, Water is Life” the mantra of the Water Protectors would resonate throughout the camp as a reminder of what we are here for. The hustle and bustle of daily life was apparent as mothers would prepare meals and various groups would conduct meetings while kitchens prepared to feed the masses. Sanitation and other infrastructure services continued quietly and unnoticed in what could have been construed as total chaos. This was truly a ‘civil society’, well except for the Bluecoats & their toys peering down on us.

 

As I meandered throughout the camp I could not help but imagine how life was for my people back in the day. I pondered how life could have been, where humanity was an axiom not just a noun. My thoughts turned to the prophecies and oral traditions of my people. Then I remembered the teachings of my late uncle Martin Burnt Fingernail and the visions we shared. If only he could see this now, or maybe he already does.

 

Our wonderful view of flood lamps was overshadowed by a perfect amphitheater since I could hear drums from the meeting area and around camp. After walking around all day it was a joy to lay down and listen to sacred songs, prayers and sagged prophetic teachings from noble speakers.

 

In spite of all the chaos I did find peace of mind at the Oceti Sakowin Camp for I witnessed prophecy in motion.

 

Like I’ve said many times before, you better have a handle on true spirituality and know who your ancestors are because the show has only just begun…

 

Mni Wiconi Water is Life…

Kinship of Rivers going to the Po River Bologna with 3000 river flags…then the Everest.

13087691_10154229982979276_2460220280454735612_n

Kinship of Rivers going to the Po River, Bologna, with 3000 river flags…then the Everest. Thank you all for your help. I’ll keep you updated with blogs and pictures.

 

Kinship, curated by Patti Campani debuts Saturday May5 2016 at the DuePuntiLab exhibition space in Bologna.

 

Kinship is a term that has no parallel in Italian: it indicates a complex network of relations which range from common bloodlines, to an extended social belonging, to the sense of one’s own roots, even to a deep and personal affinity with other beings, cultures.


For this reason it does not have a collective character, but rather that of a single project realized by various artists, by a plurality of voices united in a single body.


Kinship is dedicated to the River, to its flow, its incessant becoming, which, throughout the mutations and the complexity of its course, remains nothing other than itself. We all belong to this phenomenon: to a unique and vital source which draws us together, while allowing us to differentiate ourselves in a thousand different rivulets, and to flow while appropriating diverse experiences, even to lose ourselves and re-forge ourselves throughout the single surge towards the headwaters, which guide us towards a vaster totality to which we all ultimately belong.


The artists in Kinship who narrate this epic experience belong to different artistic contexts and territories: poetry, sculpture, architecture, photography, and video, all of which combine throughout the exhibition’s narrative course, to form a single current of intertwining creativity.
Guy Lydster, sculptor, Paolo Quartapelle, photographer, Simone Garagnani Alessandro Menegoli e Lucia Trebbi cofounders of DuePuntiLab, Wang Ping, poet.


For the occasion the sonnets of Wang Ping have been translated for the first time in to Italian. The printing of the booklet was a donation from the Department of Modern Languages, University of Bologna- Prof.ssa.Lilla Maria Crisafulli; the translations of the texts are edited by Vanessa Montesi and Margherita Orsi.


The evening of the opening will also be enhanced by the gracious presence of the poetess herself, Wang Ping. She will honour listeners and spectators with a reading from her Crown Sonnets, and she will willingly engage visitors to participate in her worldwide project “The Kinship Of Rivers” . The public will also be able to send out a prayer/thought in the form of a tiny flag towards the next leg of her voyage: Mount Everest.

 

Opening : Thursday May 5, 7:00 pm
DuePuntiLab – via Solferino 19, Bologna
From 5 to 28 May 2016
Opening hours:
on Saturday from 17.00 to 19.0
on the occasion of “Diverdeinverde” – Friday, May 20, Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 23 from 15.00 to 19.00
daily by telephone appointment at the following telephone numbers: 3474511331 – 3398721040 – 3336419333

Buffalohair: Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado

Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado

Wang Ping at TAAC Gallery

‘International Flare’ best describes the activities at the Gallery Main/Trinidad Area Arts Counsel. Along with a budding art community, the literary scene within this historic community has grown exponentially and nothing could emphasis this more than a visit by the ever popular award winning laureate Wang Ping.

 

Through the concerted efforts of the literary community and the Trinidad State Junior College, most notably, educator John Casuqarelli Wang Ping chose to grace this community with both a book signing of her epic piece ‘Ten Thousand Waves’ and do some readings from her book. On a side bar, her masterpiece earned acclaim as a feature film of historic significance in addressing the atrocious treatment of Chinese immigrants in the land of freedom, milk and honey, (USA).

Wang Ping

Open, warm and vivacious yet accented with subtle Asian mystery and timeless allure, that is ‘The Wang Ping Experience’. Whisked away to a place far removed from time and space, sometimes with joy and sometimes with poignancy and pain. In a culinary sense Wang Ping titillates and deliciates the literary palate of all who are graced with the sound of this enchantress’ voice. Mesmerizing would be an understatement and thought provoking would only skim the surface…

 

Was the audience whisked to a place of joy or dark forebode in a repartee of stark reality? Well, I was pretty frigging happy since Wang Ping was on the other side of my camera lens and I was in Downtown Trinidad Colorado. No rush hour traffic on the Hollywood Freeway for me eh. It was a two day adventure with a world class poet and humanitarian, Wang Ping. With the splendor of the majestic Rocky Mountains as her backdrop it does not get any better than that.

If you are aware of Wang Ping you are also aware she is never idle and everything has purpose and direction. In coming to Trinidad she also made the community aware of her on going *’Kinship of Rivers’ project uniting communities in kinship and harmony along the Mississippi & Yangtze Rivers. From what I observed it’s an extension of an olive branch in uniting people, not governments or politics. Just unity among the children of planet earth

Within this Kinship of Rivers project are these colorful flags molded after Tibetanwang5 Prayer Flags. For the most part they hold the same significance but with a dash of kinship for those who live along these powerful earth bound arteries of life and their tributaries. The flags where written with the hopes and dreams of the people then the thoughts symbolically released. All with the expressed blessing from His Holiness the Dali Lama.

Throughout the pomp and circumstance of Wang Ping’s whirlwind visit to Trinidad,

Beauty and the Beast

Colorado there was a theme that resonated during her entire stay and it was simply a message of love, tolerance and good will. What I saw through my camera lens was poetry in motion as this award winning woman blended and interacted with fans as if they were the oldest of friends and it was genuine. You could feel the magic as she made everyone she met feel uniquely special. You should have been there, oh well.
