“To The Original, Come The Blessings #4”
“Red is a color of vitality and a color of power. The “Native American” image has been misappropriated in mainstream society to a point of exotification and bastardization. We as Indigenous Creatives are now providing our own narrative to audiences never before exposed our perspective. Our creativity imposes questions upon conceptions of cultural appropriation and intellectual property.”
This can be viewed on exhibit in “Native Nations Now: An Exhibition Of Contemporary Native Art” featuring the Creative Indigenous Collective at the @Plains Indian Museum of the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, WY.
