“In Loving Memory of Kevin Locke” –
An uplifting devotional space created and led by Black and Indigenous individuals. The Baha’i Writings proclaim special spiritual designations for each of these unique populations. Through cultural meditative expressions in art and philosophy followed by a united prayer circle, join us in celebration of the vision of the oneness of mankind.
We dedicate this episode in loving memory of Kevin Locke, who passed away on October 1st. Kevin Locke (Lakota name: Tȟokéya Inážiŋ meaning “The First to Arise”) was of Dakota descent of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Anishinaabe of White Earth. He was a preeminent player of the Native American flute, a traditional storyteller, cultural ambassador, recording artist and educator. He was best-known for his hoop dance, The Hoop of Life.
When asked in 2012 about his mission in life, Locke said, “All of the people have the same impulses, spirits, and goals. Through my music and dance, I want to create a positive awareness of oneness of humanity.”
We share our heartfelt sympathy with Kevin’s wife, Ceylan, daughter Patricia, and his adult children and grandchildren as we mourn our collective loss of this exceptional man.
