The past few years have witnessed an increase in activism by Native Americans, peaking with the events surrounding the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River reservations. Many recent works by important American Indian artists reflect this surge. A panel of noted Native artists will give their thoughts on art and activism, how they merge and whether American Indian art is moving into a period featuring more Native artists making pointed commentary on the world around them. Panelists include Nani Chacon (Diné), Jaque Fragua (Jemez Pueblo), Teri Greeves (Kiowa), and Steven Paul Judd (Kiowa). Moderated by Tony Abeyta (Navajo).
