Carrying the Spirits of the People: Native Artists Leading the Way Towards Social Justice

Event Navigation

Friday, March 18
10:00 a.m. PT
Speakers:  Barbara Mumby-Huerta, Vice President, Programs and Partnerships, Native Arts and Cultures Foundation
Virtual Event


Despite centuries of colonization and attempted erasure, Indigenous people continue to create, share, and inspire the world. Native peoples contend with harmful stereotypes and romanticized perceptions about their histories, contemporary lives, and what Native art and cultures are. Lifting the voices of contemporary Native artists is necessary to dispel myths and advance equity for Native communities. In this presentation, participants will hear from the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation about their efforts to prioritize Native representation in the arts and how Native artists and culture bearers are leading the way towards social justice.
