This is my epic friend and sister Lyla June Johnson… listen to her flow! She’s an amazing singer/songwriter who is playing at the Black Hills Unity Concert in September with Nahko Bear and Buffy St. Marie and Ta’Kaiya Blainey and many more amazing activist warriors!!! Here are a few lines I especially love:

"I just wanna build a new world for my children

with love, prayer and unity this nation is rebuildin’

UP from the ash of genocide and division.

Red, black, yellow, white, as one— that’s the vision!”

"Some people say that the land can be owned,

but deep in our hearts we know it isn’t so

cuz we don’t even own this flesh or this bone,

no we can’t take it with us on the soul’s journey home!”

"Cradled in the arms of the sky and the sand,

just a strand in the tapestry of the master plan!”

SKIN CARE?

My skin is really not doing well again, grrrr. I think it may be the arsenic in the water here from all the copper mining ): ~ but I’m not sure! What is your skin care routine? Anything specific for clogged pores? Please share! (Reblog or message me. Posting from my phone won’t let me enable answers)

Yay!!! Three jars of prickly pear fruit tea with fresh basil from the garden… Going to put them in the fridge once it’s all steeped to make for a delicious local wild and homegrown iced tea! Also have a whole ice cube tray of plain prickly pear tea… And a few cubes with basil too! And so much more to juice and to eat raw. I love the desert SOOOOOOO MUCH. YESSSSSS. πŸ˜„πŸŒ΅πŸ‘πŸ’œπŸŒ‘βš‘οΈ

Did you have a problem with a lot of dandruff with your dreads like after you took them out? I had mine for maybe 4 months, took them out and my scalp was kind of caked with dandruff and it was in clumps in my dreads... I would like to have them again but idk what to do about that or if I should even worry about it! Help?! Loving you <3

Oh, that sounds terribly uncomfortable and icky! I didn’t have that problem, but even for a few years before I had dreads, I had scabs on my head that I picked at… It’s pretty gross, but I love picking scabs… And dreads helped that issue for so many reasons, one of them being that the natural oils your head secretes are super healthy for your hair and if you wash them out, it gets dry and unbalanced. So I didn’t have to wash my hair every other day anymore and it was healthier for me in so many ways! But maybe look at how often you are showering and what products you use. Do some research and experiment with different shampoos, water temperatures, and frequencies of showering. Good luck!

Sleeping in the Forest by Mary Oliver

"I thought the earth remembered me, she
took me back so tenderly, arranging
her dark skirts, her pockets
full of lichens and seeds. I slept
as never before, a stone
on the riverbed, nothing
between me and the white fire of the stars
but my thoughts, and they floated
light as moths among the branches
of the perfect trees. All night
I heard the small kingdoms breathing
around me, the insects, and the birds
who do their work in the darkness. All night
I rose and fell, as if in water, grappling
with a luminous doom. By morning
I had vanished at least a dozen times
into something better.”

I’m exhausted. Woke up early, hooped passionately for 20 minutes in the desert sun, hiked up a mountain, ate delicious food, then drove an hour and a half from the reservation back to Ajo. It’s my Moontime and it’s also New Moon tonight. I anointed my third eye with blood for the first time and it feels so powerful and right. I may go take a nap and slumber off this mysterious pain in my back. I love you all!!! What a fantastic weekend… many new friends… so much new knowledge to marinate…Β 

I just started flipping through this book and it is so so so so so amazing. I really had to share as I feel many of you would feel called to explore this wisdom. @crystallinemirror reminds me of your spirit specifically πŸ’œπŸ™

Hooping at my friend’s on the Rez the other day. It’s amazing how different of an experience it is living with different families here.
