"A birth certificate shows that you were born. A death certificate shows that you died. But photos show that you lived." With these words photographer Toni Roth explains why she is shining a light on the challenges faced by Native American women. Through her exquisite photographs of the women in their traditional clothing, she shows them as strong, independent women. More than 80% of Native American women experience violence in their lives. Ms. Roth is bringing awareness to this dire situation through her art and advocacy.

    Indeed ...the epidemic dismissal of indigenous women's lost lives is awful. I recently have learned that in regions where they live, police often dismiss the cases- Perpetrators feel safe to abuse these women. THIS too shall change and the correct energies should align for this horrible epidemic to stop... Art is beautiful.. Thank you for posting this sensitive topic.
