The 2nd annual North Dakota Human Rights Arts Festival will include our storybook, our new myth for the new paradigm, Ochumaré Takes on the Black Snake. #NDHRAF19
Not so long ago, in the realm of myth, the triple goddesses of the Americas summoned Ochumaré, the Rainbow Serpent, to defend the sacred from the desecration of the Black Snake. I sat at the feet of future ancestors and wrote down the tale. They sent José, with nib and ink, to draw the vision. We made a book. I called upon Rebecca to narrate. She also lent her song.
It is all so beautiful, this creative collaboration. The book can be ordered through your local bookstore, amazon or etsy. But if you want to listen to the lyricism of Rebecca, and hear her singing to Pachamama and all the grandmothers…well, you’ll have to visit the exhibit in North Dakota. It runs January through March in Fargo, Bismarck & Grand Forks.
