Alright, here’s to hoping my internet doesn’t shut out before this can post.

So before we start, I’m gonna give you guys some definitions. I’ve done some research online so I can back up what I was taught growing up. A brujo/a is a witch. The word can be used to describe anyone who practices…

"As Assyrian astrological text, which deals with the effects of the stars on potency and lovemaking, includes verses indicating the region of Libra is auspicious for the love of a man for a woman, and Scorpio, for the love of a man for a man. An Almanac of Incantations from the Babylonian period contains prayers to be said by a man seeking the love of a woman, a woman for a man, and also prayers for a man to seek another man. Other religious tablets have been found which contain text referring to homosexual relations, such as “if a man has intercourse with his male companion.” Lesbian relations between women were also mentioned in similar texts, often enough to assume they were commonplace."

The United States of Hoodoo

The United States of Hoodoo explores the influence of African spirituality, traditional religions, customs and Culture brought to the Americas by with the people taken during the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade, in American popular culture.
It is written by Darius James and Oliver Hardt and directed by Hardt.

Documentary overview The United States of Hoodoo is a road trip to the sources of black popular culture in America. The film’s main character is African-American writer Darius James who is known for his often bitingly satirical and self-ironic texts on music, film and literature. The film’s story begins when Darius´ world is turned inside out after his father´s death.

Uprooted from his life in Berlin, he unwillingly returns to his childhood home. All that remains from his father is his mask collection and a cardboard box filled with ashes. His father had been a painter and sculptor, his work drawing deeply on manifestations of African-based spirituality.Yet while he lived he fiercely rejected any idea of being inspired by the old gods of Africa.

Back in a house that is now his, but not quite, Darius finds himself confronted with many questions about his own life. In need of answers he sets off on a search, not for his roots but for traces of the spiritual energy that fueled and informed a whole culture.

It is available for digital purchase and download from Amazon.

The Eagle Bull- Oxendine family is being sued by their child’s school for defamation, because they asked the school to permanently change their offensive and culturally insensitive Thanksgiving curriculum and to honor a two-year scholarship taken from their daughter after they voiced their concern over Native appropriation there.
They’re raising funds to defray mounting legal expenses. Please share this link and donate what you can. If they lose, we all lose. This case has the potential to set dangerous precedent where Natives are effectively gagged from speaking out against appropriation and the abuse of our culture and sacred ways by mainstream society. This is legal conquest. We can’t allow them to play Indian and hide behind judicial robes to do it. Thank you.  Contribute here: http://www.gofundme.com/8f3z30

They’re not even at a fifteenth of their goal right now (7/9/14) friends. If you can’t donate, at least consider reblogging this to help raise awareness!

If people can donate 70k for fucking potato salad they we be able to hit this goal.
