This special SNG 1-hour tour will be in the Americas galleries.
Dedicated to the creativity of the Native peoples throughout MN and the US, we will explore together the paintings, sculpture, weavings, pottery, beadwork and more that reflects the diversity of Native people in the Midwest, Southwest, Northwest and Plains.
The Minneapolis Institute of Art is home to more than 90,000 works of art representing 5,000 years of world history. Its permanent collection includes world-famous works that embody the highest levels of artistic achievement, spanning about 20,000 years and representing the world’s diverse cultures across six continents.

She is known in the arts world for her vast knowledge of American Indian arts and indigenous global priorities, and had taken the lead at Mia to “show off” and introduce visitors to the differences of the respective Native nations. Recently she lead private tours for the much-acclaimed Hearts of Our People: Native Women Artists special exhibition of which she was on the exhibition and community advisory boards, and was co-designer of award-wining book.
