Washburn University, Hostile Terrain 94, Tonantzin Society and the Mulvane Art Museum continue their collaboration and bring to you The Condor & The Eagle. To understand the treacherous journey migrants make, we must delve deeper into the problems migrants face in their native lands.

We seek solutions and ideas that can propel our call for human rights and environmental justice forward Our Mother Earth, and we as her children, are increasingly vulnerable.
