“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.”

Melissa Shaginoff

(Chickaloon Village/Pyramid Lake)

“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)

“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.”

Tazbah Gaussoin
