“Adelitas” refers to archetypal women warriors who cooked, cared for the wounded, and fought during the Mexican Revolution. This exhibit will showcase the women soldiers in our lives — women who need no praise or recognition, women who shift the world manually by their powerful hearts and gentle touch.
“It was the soldaderas in my life that raised me. I saw their everyday battles and how they never gave up. I realized at an early age that this life is a battle and every person has their own battle. My soldaderas taught me that it’s not only toughness that will win the war, but most importantly, compassion.” Neto is from St. Paul’s West Side.
