- Address to the Sovereign Tribal Council, 03/30/75
Jeremiah Ayote (a-YO-tay) is the founder and spokesperson of Red Sky Benevolence Society. A former Pueblo Corporate Executive Committee member and high ranking shaman of the Kachina society, he has retired from a life of public service to the Pueblo people to tackle larger charitable work by working directly with the Sovereign Tribal Council.
Coming from a strictly traditional Zuni background, Ayote uncharacteristicly embraces high technology. His tenue on the PCC saw a dramatic shift from strongly agrarian and livestock economy which carried the Pueblo after the Ghost Dance Revolution to their current software empire. He began his political career championing the fledgling matrix architecture firms of the 40s and his data havens initiative was instrumental in recovering from the second Crash. His personal stock portfolio has benefited greatly from his matrix savvy.
He takes his role as Kachina Dancer very seriously, seeing himself as a caretaker of Pueblo cultural traditions and as leader to future generations. The Red Sky Benevolence Society is a direct result of his passion. In addition to ceremonial and educational functions, the dancers of the society work as good will ambassidors to the other NAN member-states. Well known for the magical use of enviromental weather effects and creative illusions during their performances, their primary claim to fame is in the local charity work they promote. Though nowadays he leaves the actual dance to the younger members, Ayote is the driving heart and directing mind of the society.
