"WAR HOOP FLASH MOB"
A War Hoop calls out not from nothing and not silence, but it has meaning and intent. It is heard and fades again. It is responsive. The call exists in memory. Black intellectual and poet Fred Moten writes, “The history of blackness is testament to the fact that objects can and do resist”, resistance is woven into our existence.
Being a Black and Native artist with an Indigenous identity, I know that Indigeneity, that Black and Indian, are never wholly civil and acceptable because our existence is resistance. The War Hoop Flash Mob is a celebration of resistance, of art and life that calls out and claims the space to exist, to breathe and make sound.
