We Are All Connected: An Audio and Visual Storytelling Project

We Are All Connected is a collaboration of four women who share in an idea to document inter-generational stories of Indigenous women adopted outside of their families and Tribes. The project focuses on the stories of our Mothers, each of whom was adopted into non-Native families in the 1950’s and 1960’s in the United States. Recognizing the diversity within the adoption community, our project transverses their experiences, and how their experiences have shaped their identities and ours. Together with KFAI Radio's Minne Culture Series our goal is to complete a 28 minute audio documentary to be aired on KFAI 90.3 FM by the beginning of 2016. To date, we have completed over 10 interviews for a combined 25 hours of audio material, and taken hundred of photographs to document our project.
