Moonflower Baraka

Moviemiento Estudiantil Chican@ de Aztlan or the Chicana/o Student Movement of Aztlan (MEChA) invites you to the celebration and reclamation of the so called "Columbus Day." We believe that the celebration of this "holiday" oppresses and reinforces historical racism, sexism, homophobia and genocide toward indigenous peoples and other people of color. For these reasons, in this day we reclaim our roots, our ancient ceremonies and our red blood. This day Native American, Indigenous and mestizo sisters and brothers unite to celebrate our connection to the mother earth and the four directors of ab-yala. Join us! Oct. 11, 2010
We will have:
Mexica/Chichimeca Danzantes
Spoken Word
Drum Circle
Open MicThis event will be on the UT ;Campus in the West Mall, near 23rd and Guadalupe.

Moonflowers must be among the most beautiful of flowers as well as one with a very romantic name.

Imagine sitting in your garden on a warm summer evening, a full moon overhead and beautiful moonflowers blooming nearby with their fragrance wafting on a light breeze.

The moonflower opens in mid to late afternoon and blooms right through the night. Its lovely fragrance and large flowers attract night flying insects, like moths, to pollinate it.

When the sun rises in the morning, the moonflower dies. It is replaced by another one the same afternoon until all the buds have flowered and then died as the sun's rays strike them.

This is a ZGraphix production.
Produced by Jeff Zavala.
