Fellow Projects

Matriarch Medicine by Lily Painter

A project born out of the MMIWG2S+ movement, Matriarch Medicine is a collection of love for Native women and femmes who are here, a means of carrying on the love for those who are not, and a space for healing and homage to our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and 2Spirit+ relatives.

Using Art for Activism by Evynn Richardson

The Using Art for Activism toolkit provides various tips and resources to help guide individuals willing to use art to uplift our stolen relatives and spread awareness of the injustices they have faced and continue to face. The toolkit hopes to ensure individuals are being mindful of those directly affected, culture and more while also encouraging respect for the stories told through art.

Remembering Our Sisters by Gracie Aragon

The Remembering Our Sisters website aims to provide historical context behind land and body violence, policy advocacy, resource-building and data-management, as well as an accompanying short film created to bring awareness to the MMIWGT2SR+ crisis. The website provides a more general context in relation to MMIWGT2SR+, whereas the short film provides specific information shared by community organizers, community mentors, lawmakers and advocates in so-called New Mexico. The inspiration to create this website and short film stems from an expected outcome to ignite a call to action as well as wanting to provide one space where various resources can be found. It is meant to center and honor our missing and/or murdered relatives, to seek accountability from state and federal governments to address this matter, and to serve as positive change and a resource for Indigenous Peoples and allies to refer to, engage with and contribute to.
