Since May of 2018, we committed to a Daily Sunrise Prayer Run for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Sisters and their families. The intent of the prayers was to directly spiritually confront the Spirit of Violence Against Women and Call upon the healing powers of our ancestors to mend the hurting families who have survived the loss of a loved one.
The first run, the prayer included gathering, which became prayer altars that began to take shape on earthen canvas in places prayed.
