This panel will discuss the links between art, activism today for young Native women, with a focus on the importance of storytelling by and from an Indigenous perspective, as a new generation of women uses art in their communities. A lot has been written and painted about Indigenous Peoples, but what changes when you get the chance to tell your life, your story, with your own words? How do these Native artists view American society and their own place within it?
