Recap of Rebekah Miles Show

“Women are the Creators of Life and Children are our  Future”- Rebekah Miles

On November 12, 2016, The Arts Works Gallery located at 509 Sullivan Street, Miami Arizona showcased “Rebekah Miles- Fine Art Photography”, her First Solo Exhibit; a milestone for this young and talented Apache Woman. It was such a privilege to be able to attend and support her as I was in the middle of a self discovery journey during this time over in Arizona.

The stars must have aligned for this special night, as I happened to be visiting the San Carlos Apache Reservation, my good friend and Apache Artist Doug Miles, knew I was in his reservation for the week and kindly invited to such a special moment for his daughter’s career.

As you know by now, my mission in life to uplift and support young women in the Arts, I had been invited to the Apache Rez to document Art and Culture and it was an interesting twist as I was able to cover her event. Seeing a younger generation of Native American Artists still inspired by their culture and as Rebekah has stated the importance of her works. As one sees her photography’s subject matter are always women, when I asked Rebekah if this was a mere coincidence, she shared the importance in highlighting Women and Children because they are the Future, as a Woman creates Life, the Children get passed on the Language, tradition and live on for generations to come.

Rebekah Miles exhibit was an intimate setting, close friends, family and supporters made the night as vivid and personal as her body of works displayed at The Arts Works Gallery.  Every photo had its own story, its own highlighted beauty and rich colors, a twist of Contemporary Pop Art and traditional Native Women all wrapped up in a time frame where both worlds meet and create a breathtaking still life of their every day lives. My new fond Din’e Brothers from Hip Hop Group Forbidden Theory performed throughout the show too, big shout to you guys! Really exciting to see young artists collaborating together for Rebekah; you deserve the best! Thank you for welcoming us with open arms to your first solo exhibit, shout out to artist Paul Daniel for welcoming me into your Reservation and Doug Miles for inviting us for this event.

Much Love & Respect,

Monica Smiles Tobon

Visiting St. Charles Parochial School in San Carlos Apache Rez with Sister Ruth

On November 13, 2016 I had the honor to walk thru the doors of the Saint Charles Parochial School which is located in San Carlos Apache Reservation in Arizona. First of all, I want to thank artist Paul Daniel for allowing to be a part of your journey; this place changed my life forever.

I must admit that this photo gallery is precious to me, it is a great deal to be sharing with you. It took me a month to dwell on whether I wanted to keep this marvelous experience to myself or share it with the world as I had promised. But there are moments like this that do need to be shared, to give others a new perspective on the importance of Life, helping others and allowing strangers to inspire and teach you new ways. Openly absorbing the beauty around us.

Much Love & Respect,

Monica Smiles Tobon

History of Saint Charles Parochial School in the San Carlos Apache Reservation, Arizona

St. Charles School, located on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation was opened in September 1965. The first generation Catholics who attended St. John’s Indian Boarding School requested that a Catholic school be built on the reservation so that their children and subsequent generations would have the opportunity to learn about the Catholic faith without leaving the reservation and losing their Apache culture.
