Native Nations March in Washington D.C.
Friday, March 10, 2017 – Washington D.C.
I’ll be in Washington D.C. for the Native Nations March to stand with my tribe the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe with my mom, aunt, and sister. I’m marching to not only support our Tribe’s right for clean water and to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline but also to support ALL Tribe’s right to consent on protects that will impact their people, lands, and sacred sites. Learn more about the march here: http://standwithstandingrock.net/march/. If you can’t make it to Washington D.C. there are sister marches happening throughout the U.S. including a march in Phoenix AZ!

Pot of Gold: Flogging Molly
Saturday, March 18, 2017 – Rawhide, Chandler AZ
It’s been a couple of years since Flogging Molly has played St. Patrick’s Day in Tempe and I couldn’t be more excited to see them this year at Rawhide in Chandler AZ! Plus I won two free tickets (yippee!), which makes attending this show more affordable since Saturday tickets are $70 each. I attended my first Flogging Molly show probably 10-11 years ago when they played a Tempe club. They’ve continued to come back to AZ eventually playing every St. Patrick’s Day festival in Tempe for years. It never ceases to amaze me how much fun I have at a Flogging Molly show. Here is a picture of me with Flogging Molly bass guitarist Nathen Maxwell who is also the lead vocalist of The Bunny Gang.
Our friends @skinnylister will be joining us on the road this March for select dates! Grab your tickets at www.floggingmolly.com before they're gone.

Okay, so you’re in luck! I couldn’t stop at just five events this month because I would really like to go to this sixth event, the Native Fashion In The City Fashion Show, happening in Denver Colorado.
Native Fashion In The City Fashion Show
Friday, March 24, 2017 – Denver CO
I wish I had the means to go to all the cool events that I hear about especially those that happen outside of Phoenix. The Native Fashion In The City fashion show is taking place in Denver Colorado and is an annual event to celebrate contemporary and traditional Native American and First Nations fashion designers. Tickets are affordable and if you are near Denver it looks like this event is gearing up to become one of the go-to events for Native American fashion. If you go, bring be back a swag bag! *wink*
There are many more events happenings this upcoming month but these were a few that piqued my interest. Are you interested in any of these events and will you attend? If so, I hope we bump into each other! * Don’t forget to see a listing of other events that may interest you over on the Redstreak Girl Facebook page.
