Welcome to Kinaban, Lukayo's World!
About Me
My life's work is to provide healing and ritual to the communities I serve via art and activism. I can't charge for the healing work I do (though I can accept donations only if they're offered). Because of this, the only way to fund my community projects (such as supporting my Elders in building schools in the Philippines and creating sacred retreats in Turtle Island/Canada) is through crowdfunding and patronage. I can at least charge for and share all the spoken word, poetry, visual art, music, and creative educational materials I've ever made with my patrons. Becoming a patron isn't just about supporting me, but mainly about supporting community healing.

Posting Schedule

  • Musings Monday
    • Updated weekly. These are blog-style posts that are open to the public and can range on whatever I'm thinking at the time. They will also update everyone on how projects are going. These posts will talk about my uncle, known as Noah Heart, and the Elders I'm supporting. 
  • Troubleshoot Tuesday
    • Updated at least monthly. These are posts that are open only to Children of Aldao ($10 patrons) and beyond. I'll briefly choose a topic that is a common issue in anti-oppression workshops, or I'll discuss some of my creative process, and then interact with patrons who respond to the post with their own questions and struggles regarding the topic, or whatever is going on with them creatively or professionally as a workshop facilitator.
  • Workshop Wednesday
    • Updated weekly. These are posts that are open only to Children of Kawayan ($3 patrons) and beyond. These posts will have a poster, handout, activity, and/or workshop tutorial regarding anti-oppression-related workshops I've facilitated in the past.
  • Throwback Thursday
    • Updated weekly. These are posts that are open to all patrons. These posts will contain previous music, poetry, spoken word, and/or artwork as far back as 2006.
  • Fresh Friday
    • Updated at least monthly. These are posts that are open to all patrons. These posts will have the latest news of events I'm doing, or will showcase new work I've just completed, before it's shown to the general public.
  • Saturday & Sunday Scoop
    • I won't be posting these days, but I'll be messaging all new patrons and working out their tier offerings. So if you sign up during the week and don't hear from me, don't worry, I'll contact you on the weekend!
