Protest & Prayer
Contrary to popular belief, Native American Indigenous communities have protested for the past 500 years - protested against the stealing of lands, children, women, intellectual property, and identity. Protest has been creatively put forth in many forms; included in this exhibition are works in photography, painting, printmaking, installation and video.
Though deemed invisible by a deaf, illiterate, blind and at times faithless adversary, we continue in our protest with the faith that our ancestors bequeathed. The C.N. Gorman Museum recognizes the importance of current protest, the protest that recognizes the rights of being human.
Exhibiting artists engage with past and current protest, actions, and events that include the Dakota Access Pipe Line (2016-present), Idle No More (2012), Sogorea Te (2011), Foreshore and Seabed Protest (2004), Mary and Carrie Dann (1993), and Maori Land March (1975) alongside ongoing acts of resistance.
