After photographing a very fun and playful shoot the weekend before, I asked the girls if they were willing to tackle an image that could raise awareness for the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women crisis we are currently experiencing in this country. 84% of Native American women experience violence in their lifetimes and are 150% more likely to be trafficked than any other demographic; yet there is almost no visible mainstream coverage of this dire issue. While living in New Mexico, I would often wake up to amber alerts and be filled with the helpless terror of what was happening around me. Today, there is a surge of awareness about what is happening in Native communities and I felt it was a good time to turn my camera to this epidemic. I thank these brave and beautiful women who helped with this vision for sharing their first hand stories of personal loss and struggle to keep their community safe.
