Her artistic practice spans a range of media, including photography, video, performance, installation, art and books, and centers on the nexus of social justice, cultural change, and commentary on the American experience. In various interconnected bodies of work, Frazier uses collaborative storytelling with the people who appear in her artwork to address topics of industrialism, Rust Belt revitalization, environmental justice, access to healthcare, access to clean water, Workers’ Rights, Human Rights, family and communal history. This builds on her commitment to the legacy of 1930s social documentary work and 1960s and ‘70s conceptual photography that address urgent social and political issues of everyday life.

My Two Aunties: Rethinking what Success Means for Child Welfare in Indian Country

Virtual Event

In Native communities, aunties often function in multiple roles, including serving as an additional mother to children, a family and community helper, a healer and a source of strength, a back-stop in times of need, and “an extra person in your corner.” Utilizing this concept of family strength, the innovative California-based My Two Aunties (M2A) program has employed the values of “helping and healing, as if it is your own family,” to drastically reduce the need for foster care, prevent child maltreatment, and enhance overall family wellness in Native communities. Join the founding “auntie” behind this program, Karan D. Kolb, as she discusses how M2A supports strengthening families, instills cultural family values, and addresses trauma and adverse childhood experiences.
