PROTECT THE SACRED: First Peoples For Environmental Justice

Acción Latina invites you to participate in Paseo Artístico: “Protect The Sacred.” A full day of free, interactive, bilingual local art activities for the entire family and community on Saturday October 12, 2019 from 12PM-8PM in the Calle 24 Latino Cultural District, San Francisco. 


This Indigenous People’s Day join us at “Paseo Artistíco: Protect The Sacred,” promoting local Native American artists and the struggle for Environmental Justice.

San Francisco, CA—Acción Latina’s bimonthly free community arts event on 24th Street, Paseo Artistico will take place October 12, 2019. This month’s “Paseo Artistico: Protect the Sacred” will bring awareness to local Native American artists, activists and allies and connect the environmental justice movement from San Francisco to the Amazon. Protect the Sacred comes from the mural of the same name on 24th Street and Florida in San Francisco’s Mission District celebrating indigenous culture. The mural’s two creators, local artists Eli Lippert and El Chavi will offer an artist talk in front of the mural outside on 24th and Florida accompanied by Aztec dancers and local musicians Miguel Govea with students from Community Music Center Latin American music ensemble.

 Activities will feature local native artists and activists Kanyon Sayers-Roods (Ohlone) and Morning Star Gali (Ajumawi) will present their work about organizing for Native Peoples justice movements in California. Amazon Watch Executive Director Leila Salazar-Lopez will present about the fires in the Amazon and the impact on native peoples in Brasil. Asocación Mayab will showcase live music and dance from Mayan communities of the Yucatan, while local Mission District musician and shaman Jorge Molina (Peru) leads an all ages music workshop with Loco Bloco. Rupa Mayra (Rupa & the April Fishes) will perform her eclectic music with an environmental justice message, while Vanessa Sanchez gives a free preview of her new show “Pachuquismo” a retelling of the Mexican American women in the Pachuco movement through tap dance, documentary video and Mexican native song. 

As always there will be several free arts classes and workshops for all ages and experience levels including painting and drawing classes at Mission Cultural Center and Alley Cat Books, a workshop on Mayan Murals of the Yucatán along with other arts and crafts opportunities . Looking forward to seeing you on 24th Street/Calle 24 Latino Cultural District. Check our Facebook page for schedule updates

Paseo Artístico is a community collaborative proudly produced and managed by Acción Latina.
