We’re not Indians and we’re not Native Americans.
We’re older than both concepts.
We’re the people, we’re the human beings.” – John Trudell
WATA PROTECTOR – Collaborating with the choreographer Kaner Flex, we have created a dance tribute to native people and their fight for land through American history.
This is our view of the fight against the US pipeline industry. Kaner Flex incarnates America’s Schizophrenia, playing both the native Eagle and the dark Snake as they battle for water.
Fantasized as a mix between the iconic Native Eagle and the Mami Wata African Goddess, Kaner Flex dances with the spirit to protect the earth.
Art is our way of supporting the future of native people as leaders of this country. #NoDAPL
