    Maktan 1521 is an indie comic by Tepai Pascual that tells a romanticized story based on the historical battle of Maktan between Ferdinand Magellan and Datu Lapu-Lapu and his warriors in the year 1521.

    The story involves the lives of Datu Lapu Lapu and his people and the arrival of Ferdinand Magellan and the Spanish Conquistadors.

    Back by popular demand for the Third year in a row! It’s the Third Annual: “My HEROES Have Always Killed Colonizers: Stories of Global Indigenous REZistance”

    — a night of song, words, and resistance, a celebration of every global indigenous warrior who’s been labeled a terrorist, unpatriotic, and/or savage while defending the land, the people, and our traditional ways. Through storytelling, spoken word and performance we will collectively Re-Indigenize our heroes, such as Leila Khaled, Boukman, Lapu-Lapu, Lolita Lebron, Toy Purina and Geromino so that they may claim their true role in history.

    October 13, Day of Indigenous Resistance, is reclaimed from the genocidal legacy of Colonizer Columbus. Join us this night, as we ask “Which colonizers have your heroes resisted?”

    Doors open at 5:30pm. Early arrival is suggested as last year’s event was sold out! Live Silkscreening! Native FOOD! Performances start at 6pm.

    "1492. As children we were taught to memorize this year with pride and joy as the year people began living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America. Actually, people had been living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America for hundreds of years before that. 1492 was simply the year sea pirates began to rob, cheat, and kill them." -Kurt Vonnegut, Breakfast of Champions.

    "The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century."

    Never forget that the Ferguson police left Mike Brown’s body out in the hot summer sun, uncovered for more than 5 hours. Sound familiar? #staywoke #farfromover
