This mural painted with Jesus Rodriguez @ease_us represents our cultural ancestors. Besides the #Olmec and Chinese motifs as ancestral guardian totems, we painted these to remind people to go to their pillars of support during these trying times. The leaves of the plants show how Mother Earth ties my background in Hawaii/Polynesia with Jesus’s background in Mexico/Central America, breaking down race, religion, color, we are all the same family.
.. A heartwarming mahalo/gracias/Thank you to @bayareamuralfestival @visitoakland for allowing us to paint our ancestor guardians facing the port of #JackLondonSquare #Oakland. #Papa #Papatuanuku 🙏🏽"
