The Sitt Nyein Aye Art’s & Cultural Center

Named for renowned Burmese Artist/Activist U Sitt Nyein Aye, this complex is actually a lumberyard set on two commercially zoned blocks (1 acre), with approximately 30,000 sq. ft. of covered space,  2 story building, warehouses, blab, blab, blab. The story of how we managed to score this primo piece of property is a story in itself for it was a hazardous journey.

Now we own it all, lock, stock and tomahawk but we face another daunting challenge, to bring the existing compound up to speed with regard to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Disabled People (CRPD), The International Disabilities Alliance (IDA) & The American’s With Disabilities Act (ADA).

Being that I am disabled as well as many of my friends I know the struggles a disabled person must endure during the course of just one day, both physical and the emotional aspects of our condition. I don’t simply want to comply with disabilities mandates, I want to embrace these mandates.

Lessons learned by the devastating Oakland Artist Collective Fire a few months back exposed the  critical need to address public safety from a variety of vantage points. What about the disabled people who would not be as ambulatory in escaping a fire? How would they escape & how would they survive?

Adding to our concerns is the fact we want to build an International Children’s Art Museum within this complex. How can we make this facility safe for everyone who enters this compound, especially kids? Toss in the myriad of shops, galleries and the visitors they will being to our complex and it is all to clear, Public Safety & Disabilities MUST be addressed from the very beginning NOT as an after thought.

After watching as our community races to comply with Disabilities mandates after the fact, spending millions to renovate and cobble ramps and doorways, we want to do things different and that is why I am here, to petition the global art community for assistance.

I mentioned 5 million dollars as the sum we would need to bring this arts center into compliance in the very beginning and believe me, this is a conservative estimate since fire mitigation is also necessary. So I am petitioning for the assistance from the international commercial sector as well as the citizens & artisans of the world in the evolution of this arts complex.

Along with funding it would be way cool to have engineers, architects and innovators in the field of Disabilities to assist in the construction of this arts complex. This could be a veritable showcase of  innovation   design that could revolutionize how we address the growing number of disabled clientele globally speaking.

Being that I am disabled I can safely say that it would be nice to be able to visit places that are accessible to the disabled regardless of handicap. To have freedom of movement and share in the beauty of art rather than wondering if your wheelchair will fit in the door. When I was wheelchair bound I hated crashing into people because there was no room on the walk path for me to pass.

Who would benefit from this Project? The Global Art Community & the disabled would by having another international arts and cultural destination. But for the disabled artists & entrepreneur this would be a blessing. To address the needs for the disabled from the very beginning would also open up opportunity for the disabled to get involved with this arts & cultural project from the very onset. Maybe have their own store or gallery.

The lumberyard is raw, ready for development and is prime for Innovations in the world of disabilities. This must be addressed before we can move forward. Addressing disabilities in the design & construction of this complex will save millions if we address this in the beginning. With the help of the global public and experienced professionals in the World of Disabilities this could be more than a real cool art & cultural center.

The Sitt Nyein Aye Arts & Cultural Center would be an international showcase or blueprint of how we can address the needs of disabled human beings in the future. Now that would make history in any ones book.

My mentor and dear friend the late Robert Perske championed the cause of the disabled and he continues to be my inspiration. If only he was here to see what I’ve gotten myself into now.

I know he would be proud…

Buffalohair: Thingyan Celebration. Denver Colorado / 4-16-17 April 22. 2017

Thingyan Celebration, Denver Colorado, 4-16-17

A video glimpse into the Burmese Community on Thingyan, The Burmese New Years Celebration.

What stole the show for me was the reunion of comrades who struggled, fought and in some cases were tortured for years in prison in an effort to break a man’s spirit.

Fortunately, the spirit of freedom and democracy did not die within these most honorable men.

They stand together once again.

Saw Ngo, Hlaing Moe Than, Sitt Nyein Aye, Ko Oo (below) are Burma’s hallowed heroes.

Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado

Award Winning Laureate Wang Ping Graces Literary World of Trinidad Colorado

Wang Ping at TAAC Gallery

‘International Flare’ best describes the activities at the Gallery Main/Trinidad Area Arts Counsel. Along with a budding art community, the literary scene within this historic community has grown exponentially and nothing could emphasis this more than a visit by the ever popular award winning laureate Wang Ping.

 

Through the concerted efforts of the literary community and the Trinidad State Junior College, most notably, educator John Casuqarelli Wang Ping chose to grace this community with both a book signing of her epic piece ‘Ten Thousand Waves’ and do some readings from her book. On a side bar, her masterpiece earned acclaim as a feature film of historic significance in addressing the atrocious treatment of Chinese immigrants in the land of freedom, milk and honey, (USA).

Wang Ping

Open, warm and vivacious yet accented with subtle Asian mystery and timeless allure, that is ‘The Wang Ping Experience’. Whisked away to a place far removed from time and space, sometimes with joy and sometimes with poignancy and pain. In a culinary sense Wang Ping titillates and deliciates the literary palate of all who are graced with the sound of this enchantress’ voice. Mesmerizing would be an understatement and thought provoking would only skim the surface…

 

Was the audience whisked to a place of joy or dark forebode in a repartee of stark reality? Well, I was pretty frigging happy since Wang Ping was on the other side of my camera lens and I was in Downtown Trinidad Colorado. No rush hour traffic on the Hollywood Freeway for me eh. It was a two day adventure with a world class poet and humanitarian, Wang Ping. With the splendor of the majestic Rocky Mountains as her backdrop it does not get any better than that.

If you are aware of Wang Ping you are also aware she is never idle and everything has purpose and direction. In coming to Trinidad she also made the community aware of her on going *’Kinship of Rivers’ project uniting communities in kinship and harmony along the Mississippi & Yangtze Rivers. From what I observed it’s an extension of an olive branch in uniting people, not governments or politics. Just unity among the children of planet earth

Within this Kinship of Rivers project are these colorful flags molded after Tibetanwang5 Prayer Flags. For the most part they hold the same significance but with a dash of kinship for those who live along these powerful earth bound arteries of life and their tributaries. The flags where written with the hopes and dreams of the people then the thoughts symbolically released. All with the expressed blessing from His Holiness the Dali Lama.

Throughout the pomp and circumstance of Wang Ping’s whirlwind visit to Trinidad,

Beauty and the Beast

Colorado there was a theme that resonated during her entire stay and it was simply a message of love, tolerance and good will. What I saw through my camera lens was poetry in motion as this award winning woman blended and interacted with fans as if they were the oldest of friends and it was genuine. You could feel the magic as she made everyone she met feel uniquely special. You should have been there, oh well.

Justice for Annie Mae Pictou Aquash Woman Warrior

January 22, 2013 ·

Letters from Leonard.
By Denise Pictou Maloney in Justice for Annie Mae Pictou Aquash Woman Warrior

In 1999, shortly after indictments were issued for the murder of my mother, Leonard sent me a letter from Leavenworth warning us to be wary of what the feds told us regarding his involvement in my mother’s murder, that he had not interrogated my mother who he considered to be like a sister to him and that he loved her very much. The irony at that time was that I had not talked to any authorities or “feds”. I had only been in contact with John Trudell, Dino Butler, Nilak Butler and Rob Robideau who all confirmed that, yes indeed, it was members of AIM who carried out the execution orders to execute Annie Mae on false accusations that she was a fed. Robideau also re-confirmed the gun in the mouth interrogation of my mother by Leonard (my mother had told our family of her interrogation when she came to see us last in the fall, a few months before her death)
When I replied to Peltiers letter I stated that if he seemed so convinced that my mother was murdered by the FBI, he would surely have no problem in helping “his sisters” daughters campaign for her justice and sharing the details and proof that he had to support those claims. His response to my requests for help was that he “would not participate in incarcerating another NDN man” and that he had indeed interrogated my mother but he did not use a gun. Robideau had warned Peltier to leave Annie Maes murder investigation alone and not to get involved. At the same time one of Peltiers minions had contacted me separately and said Leonard would support justice for Annie Mae if we would support him in his clemency campaign for his freedom.
The problem was, is that I had already had several phone conversation and emails with his co accused cousin Robideau who shared many details with me of how “Leonard was a fool to involve himself in the Annie Mae murder by voicing an opinion and that he should have just let sleeping dogs lie” which ended with Leonard publically deciding to support Graham (the man accused and now convicted of the murder of Annie Mae) when we refused to sign a letter of support for Leonard. Robideau said “Leonard was an idiot and he deserved to be where he was and he would go down with the rest of them”. During the five years I had corresponded with Robideau he confirmed many suspicions and details I had been told by other witnesses over the years. When I specifically asked him if Leonard shot those agents he paused for a few seconds and blurted out “I can’t answer that! I am Leonard’s first cousin” and I responded ” you just did” and he nervously laughed and said I didn’t understand what was going on then and that it was a war…it was self defense.
It was during Grahams Trial that Kamook Banks Eccoffey testified that Leonard had bragged to my mother, her sister Bernie and herself about shooting one of the agents point blank while he begged for his life. Leonard Peltier, Dennis Banks, Russell Means, the Bellecourt Brothers, David Hill, Leonard Crow Dog , Bruce Ellison, Madonna Gilbert, Loralie Decora Means, and at least a dozen other witnesses watched as my mother’s was interrogated, kidnapped, beaten , raped, dragged off to her death and then dumped on the side of the road like a bag of garbage. They have all known for 36 years it was not the fbi who murdered Annie Mae and they chose to lie and deceive NDN country to save their own asses.
Currently Leonard and AIM support Graham who was just convicted in Dec. of 2010 for the kidnapping felony murder of Annie Mae. Heros?? I think not . For 28 years our family sat in silent mourning while these cowards postured and reinvented history, and not once did they bother to contact their so called “friends” family. For those with the courage to learn the real truth and not the lies that I am a fed ( lol…. aim and Peltiers only rebuttal towards me, the same title I will remind everyone that they gave to my mother before they executed her) please feel free to contact me with your questions and for more details.
