Last night a friend and I enjoyed an invigorating spoken word performance by the Santa Fe Indian School spoken word team. The SFIS team traveled from NM to DC this week to perform their piece “Moccasins and Microphones” at the National Museum of the American Indian, and they shared a shortened version of the piece last night at BloomBars in Columbia Heights. If you get a chance, check out their performance tomorrow (Wednesday, July 20) at the Museum. It’s free yo! These artists are incredible!
“I have discovered a way to weave prayer into my hands, to broadcast my heart under a cloak of breath…I have learned to wield my language as my weapon, my art, my essence.”
