    An indigenous woman lies flat on the ground, immobile.
    As a drum slowly crescendos, she tries to rise, struggling against an invisible weight pinning her to the ground. But then the sound of the drumbeat fills the space, and she moves with graceful strength, embracing the music and losing herself in the dance until she is fully upright, fist in the air.
    “I end with my fist in the air for all the women who aren’t with us or who need to feel their strength, as I’m trying to feel mine,” Fawn Douglas told The Nevada Independent as she described a dance she choreographed titled “Rise of the Deer Woman.”
