In celebration of Women’s History Month, Trinity College recently hosted members of the Navajo Nation to discuss “Art Heals: The Jingle Dress Project.”

The project began when photographer Eugene Tapahe had a dream during the Covid-19 pandemic that performing the traditional jingle dress dance of the Ojibwe tribe around the country would help heal the land.

Eugene, Erin, and Dion Tapahe spoke about the dance and its significance with Chenille Jake ’24, and later performed the dance and invited the audience to participate. The event was sponsored by the Women and Gender Resource Action Center at Trinity.
