October 12th, 2014 is the date that once again local Indigenous peoples and allies gather by Merchants' Gate @ Columbus Circle to remember the history and legacy of the Indigenous peoples of the Americas and beyond. 1492 began the devastating genocidal campaign against Indigenous people worldwide. Oct 12 we gather in ritual, word, song, and celebration, to honor the blood memory of the ancestors. Their death was for nothing. We gather to remember and pay honor. While NYS remembers the achievements of Christopher Columbus, we dare to tell the truth the "We Are Still Here." Come join us.

Peace everyone. Oct 9 is fastly approaching and I can feel the butterflies in my stomach already! There will be great speakers and native performers at the event to help us celebrate the legacy of our ancestors. Please spread the word around! If you live in the tri-state area or surrounding States by NY- please drop by. It will be an amazing day for the ancestors and the people!
RESPECTFULLY YOUR BROTHER,

I would like to formally thank all who participated and visited the fundraiser at the Yippie Cafe. It was a day in which many First Nations were represented and unified to help raise funding for a generator for the Oct 9th "Indigenous Day of Remembrance" @ Columbus Circle. The presenters were amazing! A video will follow soon. The fundraiser was able to raise $375. $100 went toward the food and supplies and $60 went to the Yippie Cafe for hosting the event. $215 is left. $50 will go toward the NYC event and sound permits. $165 will go toward other expenses for the Oct 9th event as decided by the "Indigenous Day of Remembrance" Committee. During and after the event I learned the following. Thankfully- several individuals in the community have offered their personal PA Systems. Tribal Chief of Maisiti- Roman Guaraguaorix Perez, Juan Delgado, and former Ramapough/Lenape Chief Anthony Van Dunk offered to provide their PA systems for the Oct 9th event. Chief Anthony will generously provide the use of his generator for the event! Amazingly the Oct 9th event will be historical. The speakers and musicians will be heard! I am very excited. If anyone is interested in volunteering for the event- please let me know ASAP- shoot an email to [email protected] and visit http://indigenousdayofremembrance.webs.com, Thanks everyone once again!

The Summer is back and in full force. July 24th is around the corner and I can't wait for the fundraiser at the Yippie Museum Cafe. The Cafe is presently under renovation and it will be great gathering at the space. There will be many performers sharing their musical talents and arts. Please know that this event is a fundraiser for a PA system. Columbus Circle is often crowded and noisey. It is crucial that the speakers and performers on Oct 9th be heard loud and clear. Please note that your presence will be anticipated and let's make the ancestors proud!
