La Mujer (The Lady) Series continues to explore my reflections on feminism and specifically on women of power in Mexico.

I study culture and have taught human relations in a teacher licensure program for the last 17 years.  I am American Indian, from the Penobscot tribe in Maine. La Mujeres Series invites YOU to reflect on why these two women have such a prominent place in the popular culture of Mexico. Is Money involved? Is Power? Is Religion? Good? Concerning?

All my works are social practice art and eco-focused- using what other people might regard as trash.
