Native Hope Champions - Las Morenas
Lucinda Hinojos, known professionally as La Morena, was commissioned by the NFL as the first Native American artist to design theme art for a Super Bowl. Her artwork was featured on Super Bowl LVII tickets, displays, footballs and more. Amongst this notable work is a 9, 500-square-foot mural, the largest to date created for a Super Bowl. La Morena, who is Chicanx, Apache, O'odham and Yaqui, enlisted the help of other Indigenous Artists from various Native and Indigenous Nations to complete the mural in just 22 days. It was a team driven by strong and resilient women. Native Hope Champions: Las Morenas, is a segment that highlights some, but not all of the artists, including "CC" Carie Sage Curley (Apache), Eunique Yazzie (Navajo), Anitra "Yukue" Molina (Pascua Yaqui), and Jessie Yazzie (Dine').
