No Rest; The Epidemic of Stolen Indigenous Women, Girls & Two-Spirits is an exhibition part of a series of traveling exhibits that focus on raising awareness of contemporary issues facing Native American communities and that promote advocacy and action.  They are designed to make the most impactful and visually engaging experience for visitors in an efficient use of space.  Each of the exhibits brings focus on a specific issue and highlights diverse voices from Native American communities. 

No Rest focuses on the epidemic of Missing Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls & Two-Spirits in the United States.  Murder is the 3rd leading cause of death for Indigenous women and girls aged 10-24 years old, and face murder rates more than 10X the national average for all ages.  Four out of five Indigenous women report being subject to some sort of violence, with ninety-five percent of perpetrators in these situations being non-native.  Within that context the National Crime Information Center has reported over 5712 cases of missing American Indian and Native Alaskan women while strikingly the Department of Justice’s missing persons database has only reported 116. No more missing, no more vanished sisters, no rest.
