“There is a strong need for Native voice within museum institutions—thanks to IAIA, I believe my voice and experience can make a difference.”
Samantha Tracy ’16
“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.”

“IAIA has helped me explore artistic mediums that have changed the way I look at the world. Through constant guidance, and exploration, I will be leaving IAIA with newfound passions that will ultimately shape my future.”
The #IAIATogetherApart website was created to give voice to the IAIA Community—a voice to help cope with the 2020 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its effects on a community who largely relies on day-to-day physical interaction for learning, mentoring, and communicating.
