Planning out my tour schedule for this week in 3 states Virginia, Maryland and West Virginia with 9 shows in 4 days is no joke! Gotta be travel savvy know how t...o navigate through the worst traffic in the country (DC), get ample sleep, good diet, drink plenty of water, wake up at the crack of dawn, have a smile for the kids 😄 and give it 💯% each show! Gotta love it!!!!
We average 200 school shows from Sept to May per school year for this tour between the 4 of us.
Thank you all for the continued support!
The long term relationship between institutions and our Native/Indigenous Peoples of the Americas has not always been one of respect and it hasn't been valued - since many non-native folks see us as a statistic, invisible, or they see us as a visual fantasy from historical times. Our views are relevant and our art is powerful. The conversation presented at the Walker last night isn't new.. The Twin Cities is rich with long-time Arts Activists who have fought for our voices to... be heard for decades. I can understand why Dyani chose the Guest Speakers present last night since the discussion opens our eyes to beyond the TC region so we can hear about their experience internationally. I'm proud of my brothers and sisters who continue to forge ahead as our local brothers and sisters in the arts have done and currently do so. Now, let's keep speaking up, creating art, and supporting each other. We do have allies in these institutions and hopefully, more of our People will apply when positions open and that they will be hired to assist all of us along the way.
You need to listen to this dialogue if you work in the arts or are an educator or an administrator. ~ CM
Beyond the Guest Appearance:
Continuity, Self-Determination, and Commitment to Contemporary Native Art Panel featuring artists Nicholas Galanin, Ashley Holland,... Candice Hopkins, and Steven Loft Moderated by Dyani White Hawk
Recent political and cultural events (such as the Walker’s own installation and subsequent dismantling of Sam Durant’s Scaffold and the Dakota Access Pipeline protests) have elicited a new wave of critical conversation about the state and future of contemporary native arts practice. This program is intended to add to and extend conversations that have been happening online, among peers, and in live panels across the country and will address issues such as the reception and influence of native arts, their role in activism, and their survival in the face of continued misunderstanding, misappropriation, and marginalization.
