‘Sing Our Rivers Red’ Exhibit Honors Missing Indigenous Women

Nearly 2,000 earrings are on display in Mann Library until Saturday as part of the Sing Our Rivers Red exhibition, which aims to raise awareness of the 1,181 missing and murdered indigenous women that have been taken from Native communities since 1980. Over 3,400 earrings have been donated and collected from countries including the United States, Canada, Scotland and the U.K., exceeding the exhibition’s initial goal to collect 1,181 single earrings to represent each woman, according to Natalie Rosseau ’16. The exhibit also includes letters from the earrings’ donors, which describe who they are donating their earrings for and why. There are now two traveling exhibits, including one at Cornell, which is brought by the Indigenous Graduate Students Association, in partnership with undergraduate organization Native American Students at Cornell. Sing Our Rivers Red seeks to address the not often recognized issue of missing and murdered indigenous women, said Grace Bulltail, president of the Indigenous Graduate Students Association.

Exhibit Celebrates Oft-Ignored Art Form

Prints and drawings have long ended up on the wrong side of prevailing trends, as they are often overlooked as second-rate works and preliminary sketches. In the new show at the Johnson Museum, contemporary curator Andrea Inselmann makes a spectacular case for the majesty of these primitive practices by exploring their rich history in contemporary art and complex, often painstaking processes.

M. Icers Host Canadians in Exhibition

After the men’s hockey team took a strong U.S. Under-18 National Team to overtime last Saturday, finishing the game with the score knotted at 3, Lynah Rink will be the site of another preseason exhibition matchup tonight.
This week’s opponent is also a collection of elite skaters, but the University of Western Ontario crossed a national boundary to get to Ithaca.
