Curated by Phil Young

Curated by Phil Young, this traveling exhibition originated in Columbus, NY, the ancestral lands of the Haudenosaunee (or Iroquois). The artists included in the exhibit are from a number of tribal nations with different linguistic and cultural traditions. Their work seeks to expose the devastation and exploitation of Native American culture and tradition. Opposing the celebrations of Columbus Day, these artists have stated, “We are part of a much larger voice keeping vigil for the truths that are denied and covered up by the Columbus hoopla every year. We stand against the Columbus Quincentenary and for the Seventh Generation.” A full color catalogue was published on occasion of the exhibition.
