I met Gaby at the From Abortion Rights to Social Justice: Building the Movement for Reproductive Freedom at Hampshire College. Her mother was a co-presenter with me on a lecture about community healing. I love meeting women who hold it down for their families, and Mala is at the top of that list. The result she produce is her beautiful daughter Gaby who inspires me to be the authentic self that I am.
I met DJ Danforth at a Reproductive Rights Conference that I was a presenter at. I heard him spoke at the Indigenous Peoples Caucus and knew I needed to get a interview with him. I cound out he was part of the Tha Tribe (a Rounddance group) and had to hear a song. I love his perspective on the feminine and masculine!
I met Orokobix about 5 years ago at the National Day of Mourning Protest in Plymouth, MA. I met him there, and ever since then we have remained connected. So when I went to visit Hartford, CT I had to see Orokobix and his partner Coabey and got schooled on Taino Indian culture. We talked much about the similarities in our culture and ways we were interconnected. PEEP the Video!
