Original Artwork by Johnson Yazzie


While the corporate vs peaceful Native American conflict in Dakota was ongoing this September, a small group of people from all over the world, including Navajo people, elders, medicine men, artists, etc, gathered together and created a peaceful forum for transformation and disconnection.  It was called Restival.  We slept in tipis, ate as a tribe would, got to know and love one another as if we were a family for six days. It was a gateway to transformation.  This painting was created by one of our the artists in residence, Johnson. We call him "Magic Johnson". This glorious work is evidence as to why.   Once it was finished this work he immediately offered it as his gift to Restival.

This captivating work is representation of the Native American and why we should keep their noble traditions alive.  Thank you Johnson, Restival loves you, dearly.

We honour the Native Americans peaceful protest in Dakota and our mission is to help continue these unique traditions forever.
