The Stolen Sisters exhibition features thirty-one indigenous artists and allies. The exhibition showcases technically diverse artworks of 30 regional, national and international indigenous artists and allies addressing a range of experiences and emotions surrounding the violence against, and loss of indigenous women and girls. Materials range from works on paper, mixed-media installation, metal, clay, quillwork, textile and paint. The issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) https://mmiwusa.org is gaining national attention due to the recent election of Deb Haaland and her initiatives surrounding this issue, and various other MMIW efforts.        Wisconsin is home to eleven registered tribal communities, and the adjacent Highway 90 acts as a main corridor for missing persons. With four out of five native women affected by violence in today's society, it is vital that the issue of MMIW is given a voice.
