Resilience is an exhibit covering forgotten histories and honors the lives of women in the present.
The exhibit Resilience: Women in Flagstaff’s Past and Present tells the stories of local women from the 1880s to today who have overcome personal hardship, adverse environments, painful legacies, and economic woes. Stories about building and rebuilding their lives in the face of adversity speak to their resourcefulness, perseverance, and the determination that has held our community together. For a long time, the voices of women and minorities in Flagstaff have not been preserved in the official archives of knowledge. Resilience recovers forgotten histories and to honor the lives of women in the present. The exhibit is the result of a collaboration of Flagstaff’s Arizona Historical Society and the Martin-Springer Institute. The research team consisted of students from Northern Arizona University and faculty/staff mentors Bjorn Krondorfer, Sacha Siskonen, Bill Peterson, and Melissa Cohen.
