Cultural Appropriation and the Intersections of Indigenous Design & Art with Dakota Mace (Diné)
Date: Sun, April 3, 2022, 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM EDT
Location: Towne Gallery, 180 Riverway
This body of work will be an extension of Dakota’s current research on the Long Walk and will focus on the Navajo Treaty from 1868. A selection of 100 cochineal cyanotypes, collected from along the Long Walk, will be set in a tabletop case, arranged in a tight grid. The prints are living artifacts and connect to interviews Dakota recorded of Diné elders. A series of 25 lithographs will hang along one of the walls, an aspect of Dakota’s research on the 1968 Treaty. Two sash belts will be displayed on cases, alongside a second audio piece, a set of interviews of Diné women elders, narrated by Dakota.
