    Ai Wei Weis’ exhibition ‘@Large’ on Alcatraz island is about political prisoners and freedom of expression. I was disappointed to not see a Leonard Peltier piece. Sometimes you gotta remind them. #struggle

    LEONARD is a Native American activist and member of the American Indian Movement (AIM). In 1977 he was convicted and sentenced to two consecutive terms of life imprisonment for first degree murder in the shooting of two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents during a 1975 conflict on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Peltier’s indictment and conviction have been the subject of much controversy; Amnesty International placed his case under the “Unfair Trials” category of its Annual Report: USA 2010.

    Peltier is incarcerated at the United States Penitentiary, Coleman in Florida.

     
     

  3. the autumn air is clear,
    the autumn moon is bright.
    fallen leaves gather and scatter,
    the jackdaw perches and starts anew.
    we think of each other- when will we meet?
    this hour, this night, my feelings are hard.

    Ya’at’eeh! Please consider donating so that I may pursue a Master of Fine Arts degree in Social Practice at California College of the Arts this fall. It is with great faith and committment in my chosen path that I ask for your support. I have worked incredibly hard and produced a portfolio worthy of a $41,000 merit scholarship to help cover my $43,000 tuition. I do have my tribes scholarship that should take care of the rest and also part of my health insurance through the school. I still have my housing, food, transportation, class fees, and art supplies to pay for. I need your support more than ever to help me accomplish my goals.

  6. fuzzy haired terrified girl is running

    viscera in grain mind racing

    rubber shoe rhinestone bow

    clip of hair blasted feet

    ribbons smoking surround her

    absorbing all consequence triggered

    behind her cemented future

    generations in shopping bags

    sold out pawns crossing rivers

    of…

  9. "an other gaza"
    — 

    in chaos one man collects

    his daughter into a plastic bag

       oh my god the bag is leaking

    one kisses a cave was baby boy face just this

    morning braids unplaiting phosphorous

    wordless exhaust smoke shock

     

    what is it that remains of us now

    then what is recyclable in us

     

    men’s beards carry their lineage

    refracted memory drones

    drummed ears echo frequency

    children call for siblings reborn

    skulls fracture eyes the color purple

    here the steeliest doctors weep

     

    the sea waves shelled boys

    sirens post explosions

     

    all is shrapnel and hunger

    none is safe all are waiting

    between wall and wait and sea

    and wall there is no day

    what are we

    flares rain metal escalation

     

    descent upon heads ladders of spine collapse

    night eats sleep the people hold fasts

     

    children of lightening no rain

    sewage into water skin flamed to ash

    the women’s faces track lifelines

    grief upon grief astronomical

    dust was people last night

    tunnel is the people now

     

    raising horizon in coffins

    there is no recovery

                                                                                            

    she says they light the night with bombs

    she says that’s not the sun at all

    she says this is a crime against my heart

    she says nothing

       touch me

    she says listen

     

    we are shelter and target

    we are stars exploded

     

    the people run into themselves for refuge

    they catch up to their ghosts

    between devastate and displace

    what is destroyed again is everything

    what is created is a hole

    an other

    Shabazz Palaces, ‘Lese Majesty’

    If you’re in Seattle before Sept. 5, Butler’s crew Black Constellation has an exhibit at the Frye Art Museum called Your Feast Has Ended, with textiles, sculpture, paintings and video work from Nicholas Galanin, Maikoiyo Alley-Barnes (Shabazz Palaces’ video director and mask maker) and Nep Sidhu (Lese Majesty album designer). There’s no better way to hear this album than while walking through the museum wearing headphones.
