@Regrann from @jgoughphotography -  I've  created a group and hopefully an organization (in the future) called @nativewomenswilderness .  It will be in collaboration of Natives Outdoors and Woman's Wilderness, both based out here in Colorado.  My hope is to bring our Native woman together in celebration of our love for the outdoors.
•
I'm also hoping to begin the change of the outdoor stigma of what women should look like in the outdoor realm.  If you look at our outdoor industries, very rarely do you see any women of color, let alone a Native Woman.  I want to change this.  I also want this to be a place where other women can come together, to share their stories, to learn, and to be in admiration & support of each other.
•
I want more of our Native Women to be featured in the Outdoor Industry, for isn't this our playgrounds and Sacred Lands that's being portrayed, why not portray our Women playing in this beauty.

The greatest gift of life on the mountain is time. Time to think or not think, read or not read, scribble or not scribble -- to sleep and cook and walk in the woods, to sit and stare at the shapes of the hills. I produce nothing but words; I consumer nothing but food, a little propane, a little firewood. By being utterly useless in the calculations of the culture at large I become useful, at last, to myself. -Philip Connors. •

These forest fires are heartbreaking. I know it’s a natural process, however it’s always so hard to see your forests, sacred sites, and playgrounds go up in flames. Im praying for all our firefighters and emergency responders. I’m praying for rain. I’m praying for relief. I’m praying for Montana, Oregon, California, Washington, and the fire that started in our own forests, Colorado. •

@Regrann from @jgoughphotography -  Our Navajo elders have taught us, when the moon engulfs the sun a new sun is being created...and during this time we are to be thoughtful upon our new self. For when totality is over, a new sun appears, and you've gained a new journey. I've spent a lot of time in deep thought about this. My answer, thoroughly working on serving others and making an impact. Focusing on volunteering, supporting agencies that are creating a better world, and being more thoughtful and intentional with my time. *

This is a memory I hope to hold for the rest of my life!! There was a feeling of Wild in the air. The temperature drop 20 degrees, the wind picked up, and the earth fell silent and dark. There was sense of stirring deep within your soul and for some unknown reason, I began to cry. It was beautiful. It was majestic. It was wild! *

Mt. Sanitas was amazing tonight!! The entire summer I haven't been able to hike due to a knee injury. It's been a rough summer. Tonight I decided to see if my weight lifting and exercises have helped. I did it, slowly, and the decent was agonizing, but I did it. I'm currently icing my knee and threw back some ibuprofen...geez, when did we get old? *

@Regrann from @jgoughphotography -  Wow...we made it, Friday is here. It's been a rough week and I kinda feel like I've been walking through the Badlands, lost with no water and food! If you've equally had a rough week, I hope you're able to find some reprieve and go outside!! *

The events in Charlottesville have been very triggering for me.  About three months ago, I was verbally assaulted by a white supremacist in Boulder.  I was spat in the face multiple times, I was called a brown f*n c*nt over and over, I was told me and my People should've been thrown in the furnaces too.  I was called all the names in the book.  He screamed in my face stating that the world would be a better place without me and that all brown people should go to hell. ***
Meanwhile, NO ONE HELPED ME! I asked people around me, why no one was helping me, many cast their eyes down and walked away.  I had three choices: either lash out, run, or stand there with the love of Christ.  I stood there and didn't say a word.  Don't get me wrong, I was terrified, shaking like a leaf, and I had no idea if he would physically hurt me.  But I knew I was standing up to the hatred and injustice of multicultural people, I was standing up for myself as an Indigenous Woman, and I was standing up for those who receive hate due to their skin color. ***
If you get anything out of this...Please, if you see someone in this situation, DO NOT let them stand alone. This made the situation worse and harder to process, I was alone! I was beyond scared and yes traumatized. I can't tell you what the road of recovery looks like after a hate crime.  Even talking about this and making it public is very scary (and yes, I'm shaking and on the verge of tears.) So, thank you to everyone who stands by our sides and brings their voice to situations like these.  My hope is by talking about issues like these and the sharing of our stories, it can make our Country better. 
Thank you to those who helped put me back together and helped me see that God made me full of wonderful color.
*** This picture reminds me of what racism and genocide looks like for many Native Americans. This was the original church of Taos Pueblo, but then was destroyed by the US Army in 1847.

It was an amazing pleasure to go fly fishing with @navajoflyfisher this morning! It was a little rough waking up at 4:15am, but totally worth it!! It was a dream watching her cast! I learned a lot, I have a new role model, and I had a sea lion swim right to me. Thank you Ruth for the great morning, I can't wait till we get to fish together again!!

Coming across this beauty was amazing. I can't decide which one is my favorite, the Sasquatch looking creature on the left or the bow and arrows horse back chase on the right. Which is yours?.

One of my favorite pastimes and things to do with my Uncle, is to wander around Colorados abandoned mining sites. This weekend, we did just that. However it also taught us how fragile life is. During our travels my Uncle collapsed and was unresponsive for a while. I can't tell you how scary this was. He's the rock to our family, he's the one who created my passion for Colorado, he's a major supporter of my photography. He's my Big Bad Ass Uncle!! He's been discharged from the hospital, although we still don't know why he had a seizure. Through all this it brought us closer together as a family and I'm so thankful he's okay and for all the prayers and support. This one is for you Uncle Paul!! .

What did you do this weekend? I had the privilege of shooting marketing pictures for my good friend, Lindsay, at #turquoisetours in #taosnewmexico !! This potter, Bernadette, is from the #taospueblo . She uses her horses' hair to create the designs on her pottery and her clay is from the rich soils of Taos. It was a privilege to walk on her lands, to her her stories, and pet her horses!

As I stood watching these great beasts...they began to part and I was blessed with this rare sighting, The Great White Buffalo. •

As I stood watching these great beasts...they began to part and I was blessed with this rare sighting, The Great White Buffalo. • • "It will bring about purity of mind, body, and spirit, and unify all nations-black, red, yellow, and white." - Floyd Hand Looks For Buffalo, Oglala Medicine Man. • • •#alifealive  #whitebuffalo  #colorado  #blueskies  #bison  #spiritanimal  #sharetheexperience  #idratherbeexploring  #in2nature  #briskoutdoors  #coloradoinstagram  #colorRADo  #coloradopure  #coloradolive  #coloradountamed  #viewcolorado  #realnativesonly  #realnativesonly  #nativeoutdoors  #puresouthwest  #igsouthwest  #pledgetoprotect  #nativephotographer  #navajophotographer  #nativewomanphotographer

There are so many lives and stories intertwined at Standing Rock. Many brave souls have risked everything and have journeyed far to stand in solidarity together. This was taken on Thanksgiving Day, Water Protectors congregated at Turtle Island to pray. It was a strange and ironic feeling..if we look at the history of Thanksgiving, it was to celebrate being alive, the provisions of the Native American people to the pilgrims. Here at Standing Rock, the "pilgrims" had guns and mace trained on the Native Americans. When will these People get respect? We are unarmed...we are in prayer...we want to protect our water and environment...and we meet brutality. The world is watching. ••••• #waterislife #waterislife #mniwiconi #standwithstandingrock #rezpectourwater #defendthesacred #water #waterprotectors #cantdrinkoil  #istandwithstandingrock #northdakota #photojournalism #throughthelens #honorthetreaties #siouxnation #ocetisakowincamp #stopdapl #nativeamericans #naturalgas #keepitwild #morningslikethese #liveauthentic #landscapephotography #wanderfolk #igsouthwest #reiemployee #optoutside #spiritofthewest #nativephotographer #navajophotographer #nativewomanphotographer
