In commemoration of Mother’s Day, the Heard Museum partnered with Creative Push, a multimedia art and oral history project that focuses on the most formative of human experiences: birth.

For the project, Forrest Solis, associate professor in the School of Art, presented a short film featuring five Native women from across the Southwest sharing their stories of the changing history, culture and traditions of birth, followed by a moderated panel discussion with Nicolle Gonzales, founder of the Changing Woman Initiative and a certified nurse-midwife, Renee Dennison, artist, and Patrisia Gonzales, author of “Red Medicine: Traditional Indigenous Rites of Birthing and Healing.”
