tco traveled to the standing rock oceti sakowin camp end of november 2016 with the haudenosaunee six nation camp. upon returning to nyc, tco felt the need to further awareness and funds in support of water protector’s on-the-ground efforts. with less than three weeks to plan, tco partnered with brooklyn bowl + two friends to host a powerful evening at the leed-certified venue.
bringing together our indigenous and non-native brothers and sisters, the evening featured performances by aztec fire dancers, shinnecock drummers, hawaiian chanters, rapper immortal technique, kyp malone of tv on the radio, the skins, city of the sun, holly miranda, st. lucia dj set and more. artist amber ibarreche designed tees, caps and totes, which were sold on-site.
500+ tickets sold, raising $15k. funds went directly to the seeding sovereignty project, redhawk native american arts council and onondaga nation’s camp.
