Actors Help Great Leap Celebrate 25th Anniversary
with Reception and Auction September 13

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Great Leap, a community-based performing arts
organization dedicated to cross-cultural understanding, will celebrate 25
years of innovative multicultural programming with its 25th Anniversary
Reception and Auction on Saturday, September 13, 2003 in West Los Angeles.

The special event will be held in the courtyard of Nakatomi & Associates,
2013 Beloit Avenue, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. The reception and
auction—featuring live music, performances and refreshments—is open to the
public with a minimum suggested donation of $50 per person.

The honorary co-chairs for the event are actors Amy Hill, who performed with
Great Leap’s ensemble as part of “A Slice of Rice,” a festival of Asian
American solo artists and Mathew St. Patrick.  St. Patrick plays Officer
Keith Charles on the groundbreaking HBO series, “Six Feet Under.”

Throughout the afternoon, Great Leap performers will share poetry, song,
dance and dramatic readings.  Nobuko and Friends will share an original new
song and poet Ruben Guevara will perform his pieces, “Brooklyn and Soto” and
“The Soul of Boyle Heights.”  Emerging Latina artists, aurora anaya-cerda
and Jo Anna Mixpe Ley will perform “Bridges” about their experiences growing
up in Boyle Heights and attending an exclusive private school in Pasadena.
Shishir Kurup will perform a new piece, “Sharif Don’t Like It,” a humorous,
but not-so-funny look at the U.S.A. Patriot Act.

Additionally, actors Michael Paul Chan and Barry Shabaka Henley of the crime
drama “Robbery Homicide Division” will emcee a live art auction. More than
25 local artists have donated unique pieces, from beautiful gourds designed
by African American artist Patricia Boyd and auction curator/artist, Howard
Swerdloff, to a wide variety of silk-screened prints and original artwork.

Also up for bid will be a range of eclectic items for the mind, body and
soul.  Some of the items include yoga classes from Krishna Kaur and
YogaWorks; spa treatments; jewelry from Earth Monkey Designs and
buddhayashi; a photo session from FSC International; “Six Feet Under”
memorabilia; interior design consultation from Espace Design & Construction,
and more.

Artistic director Nobuko Miyamoto founded Great Leap in 1978 as an Asian
American dance company.  Today it is a nationally recognized organization
bringing theater, dance and music to diverse communities all over the

Great Leap’s touring production, “A Slice of Rice, Frijoles and Greens”
brings the multicultural experience to college audiences across the country,
as to more than 30,000 children in Southern California schools each year.
Great Leap’s residency workshops in communities across the country from
Detroit to Watts and Boyle Heights have brought together diverse
constituencies through theater, performance and storytelling to promote a
better understanding of how we can nurture a sense of appreciation for our
unique diversity.

COLUMN OF THE AMERICAS by Patrisia Gonzales and Roberto Rodriguez

Editor's note: This is a first-person column by Roberto Rodriguez.
          **          **          **

In society, a warrior is the person charged with the defense of a
people, community or nation. A warrior prevents harm from visiting a
nation's shores. A healer is a person who soothes, who fixes, who makes
human beings, communities and nations whole. A healer brings peace and
tranquillity to the world.

In a troubled world and an era of diminishing freedoms (the Bush
administration admits this, but claims it's just temporary), these times
call for not simply more warriors and healers, but warrior-healers. They're
needed to fight for justice and against injustice, and to ensure that Big
Brother doesn't become entrenched as a part of Americana.

Gandhi was perhaps the greatest 20th-century example of a
warrior-healer -- someone who effectively fought the greatest colonial power
on Earth through non-violence. Martin Luther King Jr. and human rights
leaders Dolores Huerta and the late Cesar Chavez are in the same category.
There are actually many warrior-healers, but they are rarely recognized by a
society that's more interested in the lives of sensationalism, contrived
survivors and self-absorbed celebrities.

Communities of color, in particular, produce plenty of warriors,
many of whom are off fighting overseas, and still many others who are being
warehoused in prisons nationwide. Of those overseas, many are there because
they want to be. Yet many are there because of a lack of choices. And of
those in prison, many are there because of bad legal representation, but
also because many have warred against their own. Many have left rivers of
blood that snake through most U.S. barrios, reservations and ghettos.

  Under the radar, these communities are also producing healers, being
trained in the ancient arts and sciences of healing and traditional foods
and medicines. This is beginning to give way to a newfound respect and
appreciation for the knowledge and wisdom of elders. Many of these healers
work with warriors to help redirect their energies -- to help build a
community. Yet a systematic effort to create warrior-healers doesn't exist.
To be sure, a warrior-healer isn't someone who stops fighting to become a
healer. No. Warrior-healers are needed to remain as warriors, but with the
ethos of learning what it means to heal and make communities whole. Part of
this includes learning to question, which is itself very humanizing.

  Characteristics of a warrior-healer:
  -- Respects elders, treats men and women with equal respect, and
always values the opinions of the young.
  -- Does not subscribe to beliefs in racial, cultural or ideological
extremism or purity. Believes all human beings were created equal and treats
them accordingly.
  -- Upholds the belief in the sacredness and connectedness of all
life, even (and especially) when fighting.
  -- Never acts pompously. Does not act as though he or she knows more
than everyone else. Is a good listener and always learns from others.
  -- Does not buckle under pressure in the face of threats, always
accepts the consequences for stepping forward and never puts others in
harm's way.
  -- Questions everything, does not act mindlessly and always has a
dialogue with his or her heart.
  -- Believes in something. Does not simply fight against something,
and believes that every heart and mind is winnable.
  -- Is not motivated by hate. Understands his or her role in
relationship to creation. Creates. Does not simply react.
  -- Does not succumb to or engage in the tactics of divide and
conquer, or scapegoating, nor resorts to the use of guilt to win over
  -- Does not subscribe to extremist ideologies. Does not hold
intransigent views and does not treat friends like enemies because of mere
  -- Fights always for what's in the best interest of humanity, ahead
of any blind loyalty.
  -- Fights to rehumanize society. Points people in that direction,
but ultimately knows that everyone must find his or her own path.

As Gandhi noted, warrior-healers cannot become that which they're
fighting against: They need to become that which they desire now. Peace,
respect, truth, justice and equality begin today, not after a recall, an
election, an impeachment or the building of a new world.

MEChA To Receive Bert Corona- Ed Roybal- Cesar Chavez
Award From MAPA

Edward Headington

Los Angeles - The Mexican American Political
Association (MAPA) has announced that the Movimiento
Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) will receive
its top honor, the Corona-Roybal-Chavez award, at its
Special Endorsement Convention and Latino Youth
Summit next week. The award is given to individuals
and organizations that best represent the progressive
ideals of three of the Latino community’s most
beloved icons—Bert Corona, Ed Roybal and Cesar
Chavez—and will be presented September 14, at the
convention site, the United Food and Commercial
Workers Local 324 building (8530 Stanton Avenue) in
Buena Park.

MAPA is honoring MEChA for its historic contribution
to the educational advancement of Mexican American
and Latino students throughout the United States.
Many poor and underprivileged young men and women
have benefited from MEChA’s work over the years—both
culturally and academically. MEChA got its start as a
student union begun by Chicanos and Latinos in the
1960s. At a conference in Santa Barbara in 1969, the
union assumed the identity of MEChA in the hope of
unifying other Chicano student unions along the West
Coast. Today there are about 300 MEChA chapters in
operation, over one-third of which are in California.

“It’s a privilege and an honor to pay tribute to the
work MEChA has done in its almost thirty-five years
of existence,” said MAPA President Nativo V. Lopez.
“A lot of negative things have been said about them
recently; but in truth, there is no other
organization who deserves the Corona-Roybal-Chavez
award more than MEChA”

MAPA, a multi-partisan advocacy organization, was
founded in Fresno, California in 1963 and has
chapters throughout California. It is dedicated to
the constitutional and democratic principles of
political freedom and representation for the Mexican,
Mexican-American and Latino people in the United
States. For more information on how to attend the
convention and summit, contact Claudia Covarrubias at
(323) 269-1575 or, or visit

Alianza Indígena: luchando por su identidad y sus derecho

Este grupo crea puente entre las comunidades indígenas local, nacional e
internacionalmente y organiza eventos para brindarles apoyo.

Ellos tienen una misma identidad aunque vengan de distintas tribus porque
"no importa si vienes de una comunidad, reservación, pueblo, ranchería,
mesa, frontera o isla, de cualquier modo eres indígena".

Por Sylvia Carlock

Cada segundo y cuarto viernes del mes, en los cuarteles de la Alianza
Indígena se lleva a cabo un evento que ellos llaman "El Círculo de la
Palabra" y es una especie de ceremonia espiritual. Entre las creencias de
distintos grupos indígenas, explica Lupe López, una de las fundadoras de la
Alianza, el águila es un pájaro sagrado que vuela tan alto que hasta puede
comunicarse con el Creador. Es esta la razón por la cual se usa una pluma de
águila para promover la expresión de la palabra.

Cada persona que va recibiendo la pluma es libre de hablar de lo que piensa,
lo que anhela, de lo que pasa en su vida y, en general, para expresarse en
forma respetuosa y respetada. "Este es un ritual de nuestros antepasados",
explica López quien es de origen purépecha.
A dos años y medio de haber iniciado sus operaciones la Alianza Indígena
está más activa que nunca en el Condado de Orange. Además del evento antes
mencionado, este grupo se reúne cada lunes para discutir los asuntos que
conciernen a su comunidad, tales como derechos humanos, educación, cultura e
identidad, idiomas y traducción y asuntos relacionados con la mujer indígena
y sus vivencias y necesidades. Sus asambleas se llevan a cabo en español con
traducción al inglés.

El 1 de febrero de 2001, un grupo de mujeres indígenas se unió para formar
esta alianza en donde a la fecha se han reunido indígenas representando
varias tribus tales como la cherokee de EU, la tarahumara de Chihuaha, los
purépechas de Michoacán, los zapotecas de Puebla, los mayas de América
Central, los mixtecas de Oaxaca, los náhuatl de Mesoamérica y los navajo de
Nuevo México, entre muchos otros, incluídos indígenas chicanos.

Además de los eventos locales, la alianza también participa en encuentros
indígenas que se celebran en EU, Canadá o México, como la convención de los
indios mayo celebrada en Los Mochis, Sinaloa, esta semana pasada y a la cual
asistieron como representantes de la alianza, Inés y Ernesto Robles.

Entre sus eventos programados para este año está la celebración de la
Independencia de México el 14 de Septiembre a la cual han invitado al cónsul
de México, Luis Miguel Ortíz, quien está pendiente de confirmar su

Otro evento en puertas en Octubre 4 es uno para recabar fondos en Pearson
Park, Anaheim y en noviembre 7 y 8 la Convención Indígena que convoca a
todos los indígenas de distintas tribus que residan en California.
