SFCC celebrated Native American Week with Red Sands Project and other events

Santa Fe Community College celebrated Native American Week with dances, an arts and crafts fair and a lecture by photographer/artist A.J. Goldman who shared a performance piece on identity.

Elisa Lucero led a drumming circle in the Campus Center and encouraged students and faculty to join in. She shared drums from around the world and their universal message of “a heartbeat.”

The SFCC Native American Club also led a Red Sands Art project in the SFCC Courtyard. Red dresses with names and photos of victims of violence were hung outside in the Courtyard to encourage reflection and rememberance of indigeneous women who have been killed or remain missing.
