TODAY’S GUESTS: Lauren & Leah Palmer | The Wild Mother

TOPIC: Send Flowers to MMIW

In May 2022, the Palmer sisters, owners of The Wild Mother, will embark on their annual Send Flowers To project. This year the project will surround MMIW (Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women) Awareness Day, May 5th. Send Flowers To MMIW is a requiem and response to this crisis through a floral outpouring which will be installed at First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City from May 7th to May 9th. Thought leaders, organizers, political activists, and those doing preventative work are joining this Send Flowers To MMIW project to illuminate, educate, honor victims and memorialize the lost.

The Wild Mother is devoting their annual Send Flowers To project to the MMIW crisis in hopes of providing a place for victims’ families to connect with the larger community in their grief. In addition, they hope to bring healing to the healers—those working with “boots on the ground” of this crisis. Lastly, they will provide touch points between a broad community (non Native) and policy makers, urging them to address the crisis that effects so many of their neighbors.
