New Colorado Springs mural addresses plight of Indigenous community

Artist Gregg Deal is painting a 77-feet tall mural in downtown as part of the Art on the Streets exhibit. The portrait of his daughter, Sage Deal, is intended to bring awareness to Indigenous women, girls and LGTBQ people who face a high risk of going missing or being murdered.

More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence in their lifetime, according to the National Institute of Justice Research Report. Gregg Deal, an Indigenous artist and activist, has partnered with Art of the Streets to create a 60-foot mural titled 'Take Back the Power'. The mural shows Deal’s daughter, 14-year-old Sage Deal, wearing a mix of contemporary clothing and traditional Indigenous accessories. She is depicted with a red handprint painted on the lower half of her face, a reference to the national Missing and Murdered Indigenous Womxn, Girls, and Two Spirit campaign bringing awareness to the high rate at which Indigenous women, girls and Two-Spirit (LGBTQ) individuals go missing or are murdered.
