Northeastern Indigenous nations share their varied artistic
practices, which include photography, landscape art, digital media,
painting, beadwork, fashion, and performance. In dialogue, they will
reflect on their lands and waters, narrative and memory, and how
their work counteracts injustice to forge new regional futures.
