“IAIA is a community of artists and activists that understand the complexity of Indigenous knowledge systems and has helped me find my voice in that conversation.”
“It was the hands-on classes, supportive staff, internships, and gallery preparation experiences that were most beneficial to me. After I graduate, I plan to use my knowledge and experience within my community and career.”
“IAIA gave me the tools to further expand my artistry and talents and I give praise and appreciation to the Institute for all it has offered to me.”
