Many of the Carnival Organizers and Carnival Crew members are approaching this project with a desire to put their faith in action and to create a space to allow dialogue and reflection. The Carnival de Resistance is focusing on reading and embodying the Judeo-Christian religion through an earth-friendly indigenous perspective, and as a resistance movement. We feel an enormous responsibility to be re-interpreting and reclaiming the deep meaning of our faith traditions- to understand them in a way that is liberatory, and about freedom, justice and restoration. We realize that justice and reconciliation are impossible without listening to the voices of the oppressed and their spiritual worldviews.
We hope you will join us in body or in prayer, as we seek to expose the wound, that the light of the Spirit might come through. We are working to create a holy game that we know is so crazy that it couldn’t succeed without the Spirit.
