Karma Star Prayer Bead Project: Saging Our Sisters/New Mexico

This project, by Tara Evonne Trudell, will be five workshops scheduled throughout the state of New Mexico to bring together families and communities to honor their/our own Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW). We will hold space for sharing our stories and for our MMIW with a ceremony that will involve typing names of the women on vintage typewriters and rolling the names into prayer beads. We will make two beads: one for the family and one for the MMIW Jingle Dress that will be the end result of the project. There will also be an audio recording of the names to be part of the final installation.
