We are honored to celebrate the work of Barbara Aragon (Laguna Pueblo/Crow) for the IndigeSpirit: Stories of Resilience campaign. Her recent digital story, Butterfly Woman, is a beautiful retelling of a traditional indigenous story and serves as a tool to help others discuss and process grief. Meet the storyteller here, and watch Butterfly Woman.
What is IndigeSpirit?
KAI seeks to lift up our families and communities by shining a light on the strength, persistence, and ancient values that underpin our resilience, to not only survive, but to thrive. We are seeking stories of resilience during this time of COVID-19 pandemic to lift up people making an impact locally, regionally, or nationally.
If you know someone making a difference in your community, please help us find them so we can lift them up through this IndigeSpirit social media campaign. Each person profiled will be asked to record a 30-second video (using their own cell phones) and provide a brief narrative including:
- Their name, location and if Native, tribal affiliation
- Description of the work they are doing that is making a difference
- Words of encouragement to others.
Please email all videos to: firstname.lastname@example.org
KAI will make a financial contribution to each person (or a charity of their selection) profiled in this campaign.
Stay safe and stay healthy!
