This month’s “Paseo Artistico: Protect the Sacred” will bring awareness to local Native American artists, activists and allies to connect the environmental justice movement from San Francisco to the Amazon. Protect the Sacred comes from the mural of the same name on 24th Street and Florida in San Francisco’s Mission District celebrating indigenous culture. The mural’s creators, local artists Eli Lippert and El Chavi will offer an artist talk in front of the mural outside on 24th and Florida accompanied by Aztec dancers and local musicians Miguel Govea with students from Community Music Center Latin American music ensemble. Activities will feature local native artists and activists Kanyon Sayers-Roods (Ohlone) and Morning Star Gali (Ajumawi) will present their work about organizing for Native Peoples justice movements in California. Amazon Watch Executive Director Leila Salazar-Lopez will present about the fires in the Amazon and the impact on native peoples in Brasil. Asociación Mayab will showcase live music and dance from Mayan communities of the Yucatan, while local Mission District musician and shaman Jorge Molina (Peru) leads an all ages music workshop with Loco Bloco. Rupa and the April Fishes will bring their eclectic music with an environmental justice message, while Vanessa Sanchez gives a free preview of her new show “Pachuquismo” a retelling of the Mexican American women in the Pachuco movement through tap dance, documentary video and Mexican native song.
