This event will be held on Sunday, October 9, 2016 (3:30-5 pm) in the Steele Auditorium of the Heard Museum. This event is hosted by the Heard in partnership with the Native American Rights Fund and the Indian Legal Program at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.
Hear a panel of cutting-edge American Indian artists and leading lawyers discuss the ways Indian Identity and artist vision can shape and challenge American Indian identity while also having legal implications and community impact.
The conversation will be moderated by Kevin Gover (Pawnee), director of the National Museum of the American Indian. Panelists will include:
- Brett Shelton (Oglala Sioux Tribe), artist and staff attorney with the Native American Rights Fund.
- Gregg Deal (Pyramid Lake Paiute) As a provocative contemporary artist/activist and 15-year resident of the Washington, D.C., metro area, much of Gregg’s work deals with indigenous identity and pop-culture, touching on issues of race relations, historical consideration and stereotype.
- Matika Wilbur (Swinomish/Tulalip) is an unique artist and social documentarian in Indian Country. She is founder of Project 562 which explores Native identity and experience through a dedication to photographing contemporary Native America.
Free and open to the public. RSVP is required here.
