Projected nightly from sunset to midnight on the Tower, enjoy She Never Dances Alone by artist Jeffrey Gibson. She Never Dances Alone pays homage to the unwavering strength of Indigenous women. In this video, dancer Sarah Ortegon (Eastern Shoshone-Northern Arapaho) performs a jingle dress dance as a call for ancestral healing and protection. According to Gibson (Mississippi Choctaw-Cherokee), “Many tribal communities were historically matriarchal and the assimilation to patriarchal systems has caused great damage to our communities.”
