Earth Day Intervention

This was a one day pop-up art event occurring in the Kansas City greater metropolitan area on Earth Day, 2016. The goals of the project were:

  • To promote Earth Day and highlight an Indigenous responsibility to and respect for the land
  • To counter stereotypical representations of Natives through self-representation
  • To empower Indigenous women
  • To represent various Native American cultures and traditions through different regalia styles
  • To appropriate the Statue of Liberty which symbolically serves as a welcoming beacon to the United States and subvert it to reflect the descendants of the original inhabitants of this country
