Our indigenous women are awakened and rising.  The moons that have come have been huge and have created shifts within us because we are connected to the moon. Grandmother moon is a representation as well of the power that exists in us women as life givers.  The light and dark of the woman in the red dress represents that we indigenous women are not just ongoing missing and being murdered; we are creating a new balance.  We are lawyers, doctors, judges, amazing single mothers, amazing wives, amazing teachers and we are reclaiming our language and culture at an alarming rate.  The trauma we experienced was not subtle, so awakening will not be subtle either, you will feel the movement like a volcanic rumble within you…we are rising and it will only get better for our bloodlines.
