Angela Two Stars, curator of the exhibition Bring Her Home: Stolen Daughters of Turtle Island at All My Relations Gallery (Minneapolis), will discuss the multi-year project which called Native American artists to create work that would address the epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous women, while also honoring the lives and families of women lost to violence and whose presence is still felt by those left behind.
Bring Her Home is a project organized by All My Relations Gallery in partnership with the Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center and American Indian Community Housing Organization in Minnesota.
This lecture is presented by WLRC. Co-sponsored by UIC Gender and Women’s Studies, UIC Museum and Exhibition Studies, and UIC Native American Support Program.
