Going Places Series
Going Places: The Realities of Being Native
Kesheena writes: "My intent in making this zine is to help elucidate the Native American experience. So often, friends and strangers alike have asked me naive questions about Indians. This is largely due to the scarcity of factual information of Native Americans and the prevailing stereotype of the Indian." The zine starts out with Native American issues and history where Kesheena gives a quick over view of the basics of Native folks culture and history. Kesheena pens an emotional open letter to her future son, which illustrates the difficulties of navigating Native stereotypes. Also included are thoughts on the Hopi Paris Auction and Pendleton and much much more. Going Places is smart, well-written and accessible. Do your self a favor and get this zine.
Going Places: Powwow Country Kesheena writes another amazing zine, this time about Powwow's and shares her experiences going to them as a child. She discusses traveling to different parts of the country attending different powwow's, the different style s that different tribes have and her families participation. This zine is a display of how the per-zine can be so many different things! Highly recommend! Also included is a Powwow Mix CD!
Going Places: A Native American in Education A reflection on college life - including frustrations, disillusionment, hopes, and direction - and how Kesheena's identity as a Navajo woman has shaped her college experience. Touches on family, assimilation, the "responsibility to get an education to uplift / better one's tribe," expectations, language, punk, feminism, and pride. Poignant, well written& raw text-heavy reflections and poems.
GOING PLACES pt 1 diné diaspora Kesheena is the organizer for Portland Zine Symposium the author of the three GOING PLACES zines that we have carried at BRZD, and we are super excited about her newest zine, dine diaspora. because of colonization, the dine were forced to leave their homeland of dinetah and have been dispersed across the country; kesheena writes on how diaspora impacts her identity (how being dine intersects with her punk identity) and shares stories of connecting with other najavo, including strangers on the street in San Francisco, her mother, and najavo punks. dine diaspora includes reflections, stories, poems, and interviews with various najavo punks.

Going Places: Indigenous Resistance "This issue of Going Places is a best of compilation of past issues, the author’s thoughts on Standing Rock, plus a quick history of the Dakota Access Pipeline." ALL PROFITS WILL BE DONATED TO STANDING ROCK -- Going Places is one of my favorite series in the distro. It's so important, especially now, to listen to indigenous voices. BRZD has been donating to Standing Rock each week with the sales of bags, pins, and postcards, and includes a free NoDAPL zine in every order. #waterislife #NoDAPL
