Moderated by Tecumseh Ceaser, Matinecock Turkey Clan, with Native American artists living in Queens, the Bronx, Long Island and Colorado, this event will discuss and showcase their contemporary art in a panel discussion. Often when people think of Native art they focus on historic pieces or artifacts from the West, however modern, traditional, folk art and handicrafts are still created in NY and beyond, by dynamic Native artists. Join our virtual artist panel to learn from these artists and explore the range of their art and what it means to be a Native artist in the 21st century.
