online event
Presented by: 
Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery

In Honor of Our Sisters collects photographs and narratives from Indigenous UC Santa Cruz students about important Indigenous women in their lives, be they family members, community figures, activists, or political leaders. This exhibition was inspired by the REDress public art project by Jaime Black that raises awareness about the staggering numbers of missing and murdered Aboriginal women across Canada.

This exhibition is produced in collaboration with the American Indian Resource Center (AIRC) as part of their virtual event series, “Seeking Justice for Our Sisters,” dedicated to raising awareness about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). 

Presented by the American Indian Resource Center at UC Santa Cruz. Sponsored by the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery, Division of Student Affairs and Success, 88.1 KZSC, Human Rights Investigation Lab, Campus Advocacy, Resources and Education (CARE).
