What does a feminist economy mean to you?
I envision beyond past a feminist economy. This means a society where there is more than just equal pay or equity for people; it's a place where the exploitation of labor is no longer in existence as it is seen within the capitalist system today. I see us thriving while living in communal collective care where the matriarch is uplifted.
How does your work uplift the community?
HeARTwork aims to uplift the community in Tiwa Territory and beyond by sharing Pueblo traditional and contemporary art forms. I really do my best to share messaging that will support other local and small businesses instead of large corporations. Each piece I create is made with heart and I do my best to make affordable art, therefore I hope that when each piece is worn or displayed it continues to provide those good intentions.
