SFAI is pleased to present the next Conversations @ SFAI. As SFAI explores the complex terrain of Immigration / Emigration, we investigate the relationships between dominant and marginalized cultures. We ask how and if indigenous/regional identities should be assimilated by immigrants? What are the ethical boundaries in adopting these identities? Where is the line between empathizing and patronizing? How do language, land use, and religious expression become elements in colonization and/or collaboration? It’s about time we have this conversation on our forefathers.
Our “Conversations” presenters are Jade Huang, the Taiwan Ministry of Culture SFAI Exchange Fellow; Ann Filemyr, Ph.D, poet, Dean of Southwestern College and New Earth Institute, and Ojibwe herbal medicine woman; and Stephen Wall, author, artist, and lawyer and Indigenous Liberal Studies Chair at the Institute for American Indian Arts.
