AYE

Ink Nash Wanikshaash( my name is), Sayyepum Ah-toot-wy Stacey Speedis. I am a 43 year young Native woman who has raised 2 children; who are now young teenagers. I am from Toppenish, Washington. I have been an Artist all my life; had to switch from my right- hand to my left- hand at the age of 17 due to a horse- wreck I was in in 1992 that left me with a whole right- side paralysis. I just did not want to let my artistic side die, even tho I had a coma to come out of that lasted 9 days. I come from the Horse Family of these parts here in the Lower Yakama Valley. There are many types of Artwork I do: draw, paint in oil, water color and acrylic, sculpt and write. Plus, my auntie’s have taught me more about how to make moccasins, dresses an skirts and ribbon shirts. We are a very traditional family who were raised going to Longhouse. We go for a lot of different kind of ceremonies. We are food gatherers for our people.

What, or how I do Art… it will depend on how I am feelin’; I just sit down n draw whatever my heart feels like n take my anger out on the pencil, on however I am feelin’. I am also an Author who has 2 books published thru  Authorhouse; Bibliographies.

If you would like to know more, just ask me,

Payu Kwaxla(thank you),

SIHASIN

(See-ha-sin)

Dine’ word- to think with hope and assurance. The process of making critical affirmative action of thinking, planning, learning, becoming experienced and confident to adapt.

Brother and sister, Jeneda and Clayson Benally of Blackfire from the Navajo (Dine’) Nation in Northern Arizona have created their own unique brand of music with bass and drums. They grew up protesting the environmental degradation and inhumane acts of cultural genocide against their traditional way of life. Their music reflects hope for equality, healthy and respectful communities and social and environmental justice.
