Niki: “I participated in the Ajo Mural Project in March, 2017.  I invited some of my best friends to Ajo, Arizona with me to paint this design on a public wall, along with dozens of other artists from Arizona, other parts of the US, the nearby reservations, Mexico, and Europe. Juntos, means, in Spanish, “Together.”  This is an homage to the converging and beautiful collaboration of the “Three Nations” – our Native Reservations, new America, and Mexico.”
