Abstract

We’re Still Here is comprised of a series of interviews spanning three generations. This project was inspired by the content of my Race, Class, & Gender course. As I learned about people of other races, religions, and identities, I began to wonder more about my own family, and my own identity. What occurs at the intersection of race and gender for myself, and the other women in my family? I interviewed my maternal grandmother, mother and sister. They were asked about their identity as a woman and as descendants of the southern Arapaho. Our discussions included the topics of stereotypes, discrimination, and how one part of identity informs the other. Although their experiences are different, all three women discussed how our family functions as a matriarchy, the importance of hard work, and their efforts of preserving our Arapaho culture.
