“There is no other experience like being at a tribal art school—being amongst your peers, being taught by people who are from your heritage.”

Alica J. Mteuzi

(Caddo Nation, Cheyenne-Arapaho)

“I produce paintings as a result of timekeeping. If I am not being productive artistically, I am not leaving an imprint of my existence. I enjoy the arts process immensely and IAIA has helped further my work.”

Daniel McCoy Jr. ’16

(Muscogee Creek/Citizen Band of Potawatomi)

“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.”

George Alexander

(Muscogee Creek)
