Powwow for Hope is a community fundraising event that honors loved ones who have battled cancer or are fighting cancer and provides an opportunity to learn more about cancer prevention and resources.
Your help is needed to address the cancer burdens faced by many American Indian families throughout Indian Country. Teams raise funds in many different ways before, during and after Powwow for Hope. All money raised will be used to provide cancer education and supportive services for American Indians.
Hello, my name is Rory Erler Wakemup, director of All My Relations Arts (AMRA). I am looking for 300 volunteers to march these “mirror shields” on May 1st, Gather at Cedar Field at 9am, march for a mile to the MAIC and eat a free lunch.
Wakeump, who is the director of All My Relations Gallery, which is run by the Native American Community Development Institute (NACDI) in Minneapolis, is longtime friends with Hanska. Recently, Hanska was a featured artist in All My Relations’ “On Fertile Ground” exhibition. During that show, AMRA and Forecast Public Art hosted a workshop making mirror shields.
