One Million Bones, Idaho

A collaborative art installation to raise awareness and funds to help eliminate genocide and violent crimes still happening all over the world.

One Million Bones is a collaborative art installation designed to recognize the millions of victims and survivors who have been killed or displaced by ongoing genocides and humanitarian crises in Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Somalia and Burma. Each bone made will generate $1 towards stopping the atrocities of genocide and violent crimes still happening to this day across our great planet.

Watch for events from August through December for bone making, connecting and raising more awareness to help stop these crimes. These bones, along with all other states will travel to Washington D.C in 2013 to be part of a national art exhibit in the National Mall in front of the Capital Building. June 8, 9, 10.

Our pallets of bones, heading to D.C. Wish we could be there in June, but too many complications. Please lay some bones for Idaho!! Thanks to all the wonderful helpers we had this past 10 months!!!

[05/13/13]   Our time here in Idaho has come to the end for the One Million Bones Project. We have had the most amazing journey this last 10 months making bones and connecting with our community and the wonderful people in it. I am proud to say we did an amazing amount of bones, close to 20,000 and they will be shipped off next week to Washington for the installation. Thank you to BSU Service Learning dept and students who have been there every step of the way. We also thank so many wonderful helpers in our community for helping to fire bones and also make bones. Fort Boise Community Center, Borah High School, and a few private folks that used their personal kilns to fire for us. We made it!!! Good job IDAHO!!!! 04/24/2013

I had the extreme pleasure today to see part of an amazing documentary called ICYIZERE: Hope, issuing the genocide in Rwanda and the decades of healing and rebuilding communities within and among the Rwandan people. I also got to talk briefly with film maker Patrick Mureithi about his desire to help heal a country so torn apart with trauma and sorrow over the 3 month genocide of the Tutsi people. I cried and my heart was touched and I had a strong remembrance of why I want to do this work. To help those whose voice has not yet been heard, be heard and to make change happen. What an amazing project! Filmed over the course of three years, ICYIZERE:hope is a documentary about a reconciliation workshop in Rwanda that brings together 10 survivors and 10 perpetrators of the 1994 genocide, with encouraging results.

[04/23/13]   Borah High School made 300 wonderful bones for the state of Idaho to ship to D.C. Thank you so much to the students who participated and to Patrick for firing the bones!! Amazing!!

[04/23/13]   We added another 1,598 bones to our count from our last Service Saturday!! We had some great students who did an amazing job making bones!! Thanks to everyone who participated!!

[04/22/13]   Today Amanda will do our final bone count. Our last 3 events; City Church, The Idaho Youth Ranch and First Thursday produced 1036 bones to add to our count. We had a great last Service Saturday with BSU students! More bone counts to come!

[04/19/13]   As we move into our last 2 events this week for bone making, we think back over the last 10 months that we have worked on this project and are so grateful for so many people that have come along our path and helped us make so many wonderful bones and find kilns for firing. We guess our count to be at least 25,000 and possibly more by the end of this month. We have almost 200 boxes that will ship to D.C. What a wonderful ride with so many amazing people!! Thank you to everyone who helped us in so many ways!!
