Fawn Douglas: Artivist, Matriarch, Nuwu

This week Justin Favela talks to artist, activist and matriarch, Fawn Douglas. They get into her history as an Indigenous American artist and enrolled member of the Las Vegas Paiute Tribe, talk about her role as a student and educator, and discuss her as advocacy work for the Nuwu culture and the many indigenous groups in southern Nevada. They also catch up on her time as an MFA candidate at UNLV, talk about the lack of equity and diversity within Las Vegas cultural institutions and so much more!
