We are pleased to feature Sioux artist, Maxine Noel's pieces from her line, "Not Forgotten", of which her proceeds go directly to the Native Women's Association of Canada for their "Sisters in Spirit" project in order to support efforts in aiding missing and murdered Aboriginal women. She says, "The floating figures throughout the paintings are the spirits and the presence of the missing and murdered women. Missing but never lost. Always present, always remembered."
