2014 National Tour Continues


Peace Sweet Soul!
What a phenomenal journey it has been. From performing in ceremony with the International Council of the 13th Indigenous Grandmothers in AZ to bringing our relentless flavor to the halls of Harvard Graduate School, our Spring National tour has been overflowing with powerful shows and workshops, and plenty of magic in between.15 events down, and 15 left to go! We thought we’d update our faM-base with the next round of Climbing PoeTree occurrences, and share some fun photos from the road. Scroll on below! Hope to see you on the trail!

Immense Love and Gratitude
for every opportunity we have to share our hearts,
Alixa & Naima
