Protect the Sacred gives voice to the diverse Urban Indian community of this region. As Native artists, we reject externally constructed expectations for people of color, who are often confined by the recognition of their ethnicity in the mainstream art world. This exhibition empowers Indigenous artists to represent themselves, whether in traditional or contemporary contexts. Through our work, we hope to showcase the complexity of our cultures and identities, and broaden perceptions of Native American art.
