Three Sisters Collective was founded in Spring 2017 by three local Pueblo womyn in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 3SC is led by Pueblo womyn, for Pueblo People and the greater communities that we come from. Through the arts and activism, we strive to address social and environmental injustices and counteract oppression our communities have internalized. Our projects are collaborative, inter-sectional formats of expression and community action. Our vision is to reclaim and celebrate Pueblo Indigenous identity and culture through the arts and activism.

Autumn attended the Institute of American Indian Arts and began organizing within the student body and collaborating on a long term jewelry and fashion project called The Soft Museum. This work led to design opportunities with Beyond Buckskin, Meow Wolf, and Paul Frank. Since then, her projects have become community oriented, focusing on empowering femmes of color in Northern New Mexico and engaging indigenous youth in leadership and community building. Presently, she is focused on becoming a full spectrum doula. Autumn’s interest in birthwork comes from her relationship with her maternal grandmother and her passion to reclaim indigenous knowledge.
