It had been a  couple years since I last spent any time with Marley and her mom, Sina in their spot near the Little Colorado River Gorge.  I had a leftover screen print that was one of the posters used to promote the 2014 People’s Climate March (printed by Justseeds artist, Jesse Purcell).  Although Sina wasn’t there, Marley was there with a full crew.  Thanks for a fun hang!

cow springs trading post (with step + kate mytty)

yeah.  it was another gorgeous day on the rez.  while installing at cow springs, we met a local youth named deshaun.  his skateboard broke while he was showing us a trick.  we’re going to get him another one but he doesn’t know that yet.  thanks for the love deshaun. back at you.

i wrote that entry on my old blog back in june 2011 after meeting deshaun.  while pasting today he appeared.  he didn’t say anything as he approached.  he just went straight to his favorite spot at the old trading post.  he sat against the chimney atop the building watching the setting sun and listening to his ipod.

after about 15 minutes we chatted a bit.  i didn’t recognize him immediately but when asked, he told me he’s deshaun.  all i could say was “…man!  you’ve grown.”  he’s on the football team for the tuba city eagles middle school now and he remembers getting a skateboard from me 3 years ago.
