Native Ecologies

January 26 – December 30, 2019
Recycle, Resist, Protect, Sustain



What do you see and what can you understand when you look at a piece of Native pottery made in the late 19th century? In this gallery, we'll ask what we might see and understand of Native and social ecologies when we look in, under, and outside the drawing, carving, tool, ceremonial object, and item of clothing—that is, Native relationships with and responsibilities to place, land, water, plants, and animals, and to family, community, and stranger.

The installation of this gallery was generously supported by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.
