Free and open to the general public, families are welcome.
In commemoration of Motherâ€™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. ASUâ€™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.
