Native Artists, Northeast Futures

Two artist conversations honoring Indigenous Peoples' Day 2021, moderated by MAM Curator of Native American Art Laura J. Allen and artist, curator, and advocate Iakowi:he'ne' Oakes (Mohawk).

In this series, artists from Northeastern Indigenous nations share their varied artistic practices, which include photography, landscape art, digital media, painting, beadwork, fashion, and performance. In dialogue, they reflect on their lands and waters, narrative and memory, and how their work counteracts injustice to forge new regional futures.
