Our Creation Stories

The Changing History, Culture and Traditions of Birth

Free and open to the general public, families are welcome.

In commemoration of Mother’s Day, the Heard is pleased to partner with Creative Push, a multimedia art and oral history project that focuses on the most formative of human experiences: birth. ASU’s Forrest Solis will share a short film featuring five Native women from across the Southwest sharing their stories of the changing history, culture, and traditions of birth. A moderated panel discussion will follow with Nicolle Gonzales, founder of the Changing Woman Initiative and a certified nurse-midwife, Renee Dennison, artist, and Patrisia Gonzales PhD., author of Red Medicine: Traditional Indigenous Rites of Birthing and Healing.
