Indigenous Artist Leadership Program

January 28, 2011

Keevin Lewis, Community Services Coordinator at the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI), recently wrote a blog about the various awardees of the 2010 Artist Leadership Awards from the NMAI. This summer I spent two weeks in DC using the NMAI archives investigating Native transportation and Métis art. From this research, next week I will begin working with urban Anishinaabeg youth building lowrider bikes based on Great Lakes Native history. Keevin talks a little about the project in his blog.
In addition to my award, the other artists awarded Artist Leadership Awards included John Hudson (Tsimshian), Erica Lord (Athabascan/Inupiaq), Royce Manuel (Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian), Jeri Redcorn (Caddo/Potawatomi), Kelly Church (Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Ojibwe Indians), and Eric Hamar (Haida).
