Takaji My Relatives
This publication contains history about Indigenous activism which was fundamental to the formation of the man that I am today and I was so glad to find it on the internet. Most importantly it makes lots of mentions of the Native American activist newspaper of the 1970's “INDIGENA” for which I drew many illustrations while I was still a young student in college at COLUMBUS COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN. In particular it was very emotional to read accounts of the labor that editor MARIE-HELEN LARAQUE performed on the staff of that newspaper. This extraordinary Taino woman from Haiti was the person who first introduced me to the writings of Ramon Pane in 1974. She is gone now but her soul is always close to my heart.
