Please join me on Sunday, May 15th, at 4 pm, to honor my father’s 100th birthday and to support the late Mohawk elder, Tekaroniaken Jake Swamp’s vision of healing for indigenous peoples. I will have for sale my most recent sculptures and paintings, a group called Sacred Earth.

Talk by Vickie Downey from Tesuque Pueblo: Rekindling the Fires
Film by Vijali Hamilton: The World Wheel Journeys (27 min.)
“Rekindling the Fire is a gathering of Indigenous Leaders in 2012 from the whole of the Americas. The gathering will take place on the banks of the Mississippi River in prayers of hope, love and healing so that we may return to our communities bringing a commitment to rekindle the path of our ancestors.” (Vickie Downey)
In February 2011 my friend, Dominique Mazeaud, and myself won an award for “Ceremonial Art and Ritual” from The Art and Healing Network. It is the link to a short article, you may be interested in taking a look at their website and the range of healing work done by artists.
