Okizi (To Heal) Opening Reception
Join us for All My Relations Arts Opening Reception of Okizi (To Heal).
Okizi (To Heal), is a partner exhibition with the American Swedish Institute (ASI) in response to the traveling exhibition, Arctic Highways: Unbound Indigenous People. A common theme of these dual exhibitions is the healing impacts of cultural revitalization. While efforts were made to separate Native peoples from their spirituality, language, and cultural knowledge and traditions, Okizi highlights the revitalization efforts that reconnect this generation and future generations to our language, land, and culture as a means of healing from historical and generational trauma.
In collaboration with ASI, All My Relations Arts will host Mygration, an immersive, large-scale installation of drawings and prints by Sámi artist Tomas Colbengtson and Swedish artist Stina Folkebrant, alongside invited and juried American Indian artists Keith Braveheart, Karen Goulet, Courtney Leonard, and others.
