Help Indigenous Pride LA connect to Two Spirit, Indigiqueer, & Indigenous LGBTQPAI folks who have been adversely affected by COVID-19 and are in need of assistance. Artists, performers, healers, business owners, etc. We are utilizing our platform to share their relief efforts (GoFundMe, Cashapp, Venmo, etc.) as well as their business pages in hopes that it will bring customers their way. In addition, feel free to share valuable resources that could assist us in helping these individuals. Together, let's help our community in this dire time of need.
When: June 16 - 19, 2021
Where: Window Rock, AZ & Online (Facebook & YouTube)
In 2021, the theme for Diné Pride is a focus on honoring all Indigenous Womxn who continue to uplift communities, lead our movements & are the changemakers for our Sovereign Nations. Before Manifest Destiny, the forced removal of Native children to boarding schools, the Women's Suffrage Movement, & the Stonewall riots in New York City - our Indigenous Womxn have been at the forefront protecting sacred knowledge, passing forth our oral tradition, and raising resilient Tribal Nations. We will continue to honor the role of our matriarchs for generations to come.
