I would like to be a member because I support Native American Women in all creative
endeavors, especially film where we can share our stories of love, care and
understanding. We are the creators, the mothers to all, we embrace our families and
our communities, and through our stories we connect our generations to the
sacredness of womanhood and families.
Dawn Ferguson has founded a group called Diné Action that helps educate and mobilize
the Diné community on issues that affect Native sacred sites in New Mexico and
Arizona. She is a founding board member of Enchanted Uprising, a group that evolved
from the Women’s March and focuses on protecting diversity and immigrant rights in
New Mexico, access to affordable healthcare, and environmental change.
Dawn is also an Extra Actress and film lover.
