Tonight in Lake Park votive lights were laid around the perimeter of an ancient Indian burial mound. A dozen poets were on hand to articulate our message. To the beat of native drumming we danced a ceremonial round dance that encircled the mound.
Thanks go to the Overpass Light Brigade for organizing the event and who say:
We stand on the coldest day of the winter against a Wisconsin Republican piece of legislation that would allow for the destruction of Native American mounds that stand in the path of development and extraction projects. We say people and culture over profit.
Mikwenim is an Ojibwa word for rememberance.
