Max Chambers Library - First Floor

Honoring Native American Women
These artists credit their work to their indigenous heritage, while many shared their talents as art educators and expanded creativity among generations. The artworks pay homage to the cultures, histories, and memories of indigenous women. The epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous women is part of the spectrum of violence experienced by women in the Native community. This crisis can be attributed to the lack of legal protections from the systematic erosion of tribal sovereignty.

100+ Years of Women's Athletics at UCO
After a century of fighting for gender equality on many fronts and the passage of new legislation toward the end of the 20th century, the playing field for women's athletics in higher education began to level out.
