Through visual, written, & speech-based forms of cultural representation, Bury My Art At Wounded Knee aims to explore, and thereby challenge, contemporary notions of Native art. The main objective of the exhibition is to acknowledge Indigenous resistance through the origins of the American Indian Movement (A.I.M.), Native north american political art, & present day issues in Native america.
It is dedicated to the long legacy of Native north american artists, warriors, activists, writers, & visionaries, in order to provide an adaptable platform for future exhibitions, projects, manifestations, & uprising.

The seeds of the collective have been planted firmly in the ground since the onslaught of european madness. At its foundation, R.I.S.E. is invested in the education, perseverance, & dissemination of Native north american art, activism, writing, history, storytelling & lived experience. R.I.S.E. is a call to action yielding multiple tools including photographs, paint, wheatpaste, clay, beadwork, dancing, words, voices,
sounds, ritual, & more.

Anonymous asked: Boozhoo niijikwe gemaa niikaan, I came across your Boozhoo post and have a correction to make if you'll hear it. Boozhoo is actually not from the French Bonjour. Linguistically and etymologically, Boozhoo comes from Waynaboozhoo, or original man, the cultural hero of the Ojibwe. Saying Boozhoo greets that spirit in another person. Furthermore, Ojibwe contains the phonemes of Bonjour therefore not requiring the change, nor declension, into Boozhoo. Both are fine. Mii ih, miigwech bizindawiyeg.
I shall have to talk to some of the Ojibwe language folks in my hometown as this is who I learned this from.
Chii Miigs for sharing!
