Everything I Say Is True
a live sound/video performance presented by Decolonize LA
Everything I Say Is True is a lecture performance by Southern California-based, Oglala Lakota artist Kite. In the lecture Kite constructs a complex narrative through the use of her own family’s ephemera and historical documents as well as through a new body of work in various mediums, including video, sound and sculpture. Everything I Say Is True considers concepts of truth in relation to Oglala Lakota knowledge systems.

at land’s edge is an autonomous pedagogical platform based in East and South Los Angeles that nurtures the voices of cultural producers who are committed to social transformation. We understand pedagogy as not only a method of education, but as a critical space where the processes of teaching and learning, knowledge and action, and self and community are reflexive, interwoven, and oriented toward the liberatory possibilities of a just and democratic world.
DecolonizeLA is an autonomous group made up of Los Angeles-based artists, educators, Indigenous Peoples and activists, and members of HRLA’s Programming Committees. This group recognizes the word decolonize as a process and action word that must center Native/Indigenous people’s autonomy, and the liberation of all oppressed peoples as its goal. Steps toward decolonization include acknowledging the effects of colonial oppressive structures, and demanding an end to the legacy of environmental, physical, psychological, cultural and artistic violence, and opposing the perpetual structure of inequity forced upon us by colonialism and white male hetero-normative supremacy. This group recognizes that many communities are working towards decolonization. We embrace and celebrate this opportunity to honor their work and transform our city.
