"Heading into the Wind: A Memoir"
New Mexico History Museum
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Please join Jack Loeffler for a book presentation and signing for his new autobiography.

With the temperament of Santa Claus and the tenacity of a badger, Jack Loeffler reveals his compassion and concern for Southwestern traditional cultures and their respective habitats in the wake of Manifest Destiny. Working both as an individual and with comrades--including Edward Abbey and Gary Snyder--he was part of an early coterie of counterculturalists and environmentalists who fought to thwart the plunder of natural resources in the Southwest. Loeffler, a former jazz musician, fire lookout, museum curator, bioregionalist, and self-taught aural historian, shares his humor and imagination, his adventures, observations, reflections, and meditations along the trail in his retelling of a life well lived. In this honest memoir, he advises each and every one of us to go skinny-dipping joyfully in the flow of Nature to better understand where we’re headed.

Talk on the Tribesourcing Project with Jennifer Jenkins, PhD
Museum of International Folk Art
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Sunday, March 1, 2020 2:00-3:30pm in the Vernick auditorium.

“Tribesourcing is a digital humanities project, where existing "social studies" films from the American Indian Film Gallery, made in the 1950s and 1960s are re- recorded with new narrations by community members and elders from Native American communities. This “tribesourcing” method allows for identification of local knowledge that might otherwise be lost, as well as providing a rich, community-based metadata record for each film.

Jennifer Jenkins, PhD, Tribesourcing Project Manager, and English Professor at the University of Arizona, will demonstrate the merging of old video and new audio in Mukurtu at Tribesourcingfilm.com and discuss what she has learned in the process of digitally repatriating these midcentury films.”

The Quilt Project: How Art Translates Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
A Friends of Indian Art Member Event

The Red Quilt Solidarity Project (RQSP) is a national initiative to raise awareness of violence against women and children with a focus on Missing/Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). The RQSP is open to all people who wish to speak out about violence against women and children all over the world. The RQSP was initiated by Tina Sparks as her BFA Senior Project at the Institute of American Indian Arts. The project was publicly launched in February, 2019, and has received numerous panel contributions from across the country. The intention for this project is to be a visual voice to evoke visibility, funding and change for issues surrounding violence against women and children. The long-term goal for the Red Quilt Solidarity Project is to transport and display the quilts/panels on the national mall in Washington, DC, much like the AIDS quilt in the 1980’s. Tonight’s event will be a collaborative presentation of information surrounding issues of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women initiating and inviting community conversation.

Please note that you must be a member of the Friends of Indian Art in order to participate in FIA events. You can learn more about joining the friends group by visiting its page on the Museum of New Mexico Foundation’s website.
