“We propose a meaningful art installation to expand on the impactful one-day Pop-Up titled Silenced Lives, that took place on May 5th at Miccosukee Village. The project seeks to address the ongoing issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP) by creating an art installation with the works of eight Indigenous artists and valuable information provided by the MMIWHOISMISSING organization. The artists come from various tribal lands and ancestries, including Miccosukee, Seminole Tribe of Florida, Mohawk, Yavapai-Apache Nation, Alabama-Coushatta Tribe of Texas, and Nahua.
This installation will be housed at the Miccosukee Village, a location deeply rooted in Indigenous heritage, making it a culturally significant venue for the installation. The project will include reproductions of the artists’ works, accompanied by photography and information about MMIP, creating a platform for discussion, education, and action. This project will not only pay homage to the MMIP but also emphasize the resilience and strength of Indigenous communities.”
