ON THE COVER: “Yeego Sodizin” by artist Venaya Yazzie (Diné/Hopi), from her Sodizin (Prayer)-Resistance series of paintings. “The images I create originate from ancestral memory,” says Yazzie. “As a Diné/Hopi person living in the 21st century, I feel this need to perpetuate the true cultural stories of my people as a way of saying, ‘We are still here, we will always survive.’” She adds that this painting, “Yeego Sodizin,” is a direct result of her cultural historical consciousness—and the Indigenous ways of life are her inspiration.
