Their work answers the question, “What does it mean to be an Urban Indian Woman that advocates for Native health and wellness in Omaha? What is your story?” The works include poetry, paintings, sculptures, dolls, shawls, moccasins, and more.
The exhibition is a collaboration with WOVEN, an exploration of feminism in Omaha by artists Victoria Hoyt and Camille Hawbaker. WOVEN won the Omaha Creative Institute’s Spring Creative Grant.
Exhibit co-curated by Brittany Strong, Omaha Public School teacher for the Native Indigenous Centered Education (NICE) and Regina Emily Robbins, Assistant Professor, Native American Studies, University of Nebraska Omaha.
