“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

(Diné)

“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 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.”

Carmen Selam ’16

(Yakama/Comanche)
