Calling the International Girl Gang! This issue is for any womxn/femmes of color who grew up watching their parents send money via Western Union to family in the homeland and making long distance calls with international calling cards. For girls who switch between codes and languages, girls who message their family on WhatsApp. Girls who were told they had difficult names to pronounce. Girls who collect stamps in their passport, girls who dream of a faraway (or nearby) land, still have foreign currency in their wallets. Girls who have had international flings, keep coming home to something nowhere else has. How much foreign weed have you smoked? Indigenous girls everywhere rep your tribe and your clan, your corner of the earth. We want as many different stories as possible represented, want to see where everyone is from. Tell us your story in any medium available to you ~ email all submissions to high@womenweedwifi.com by March 3, 2019!

International Girl Gang Expo: Night at the Neptune Visuals

✨Editor’s Preface✨ wow, it’s hard to believe it’s been a minute since the #internationalgirlgangexpo !!

In July 2017 we took over the historic Neptune Theatre, filling it with 20+ all woc vendors, performers, DJs, visual producers! Over 300+ of you came out to our purple and blue oasis to support all the talent. It was truly magical 💜✨💙 if y’all knew how many actual true miracles we had to turn out to pull this off...this was our greatest test and sweetest success!

Thank you so much to STG PRESENTS for awarding us with the Nights at the Neptune grant (an award for artists/collectives working for social justice through their art), Martín Sepulveda and all the Neptune staff for their help, all the performers/vendors, and everyone that came out ! We’ll never forget the feeling of that night ✨✨✨ ~ Kenya Ku$h

Mystic Marijuana: New Moon in Capricorn Solar Eclipse

To feel your healing skills developing in a palpable way, fill your plate full of colors—Eat the rainbow. After this new moon you’ll be self and cosmically pressured to really set up your future. Before you nourish your dreams, nourishing your body takes place first. This includes the weed that pleases your eyes and nose, since that also enters your body. 

Earth fortifies us with vibrant veggies, fruit, and all shades of greens. Through these fresh produce, the truth pours down our belly. When we eat what Earth provides, we can go back to source—the divine grace hauled by our ancestors, an ongoing fragment of energy. We are morally bound to pick up the natural resources that have been stripped from us, which explains why most of us are homesick for a place of naked divine direction. 2019 suggests we give form to that which has no form, to be guided by divine spirit, starting with the divine spirit flowing out of food.

Everything else not grown from Earth undermines our attempt to grow strong with water and wildlife. Manufactured opinions and meals subdue our visions. The energy we use to express ourselves doesn’t actually come from us, we only lead it.

Visual Experience: “In this Moment—Standing Rock”

In 2016, Nisqually banded together 12 different tribes up and down the west coast and a few east coast tribes to join us in a paddle down the Missouri River. Our destination was Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, where we were joining them in their fight to protect their land and water from dangerous and exploitative pipeline drilling. This two-day pull was welcomed by rain, sleet, and sunshine. Despite tumultuous weather the best part was being welcomed by our people and carried through by our ancestors.

The video below is compiled of images from the morning we pulled in, with an ending scene of Handford McCloud, Council Member of the Nisqually Indian Tribe asking the Sioux Tribes Chief for permission to come upon the shore.

"It was us against the government. I breathe in and I breathe out."
