March 29, 2018 ǀ Returning to Grandmother’s Beauty: Indigenous Women’s Journey of Tattoo
The Clime in California has been enriched by the emboldened indigenous women and their journey returning to facial tattoos of their grandmothers. These women face American society in stride with their faces and bodies enhanced with traditional tattoos rooted in the Dreamtime traditions of their ancestors. They expose their struggles and challenges faced in achieving their walk in contemporary society as full native women.

Featuring Live Demos in the NHMLA Tattoo Parlor with Jazmine Atienza and Zel Festin: Mark of the Four Waves
