First Peoples Fund hosted a visit by Roberta Uno and Art Change US from CalArts on October 17th. As part of their tour of the Black Hills and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, Roberta and her team dropped by Racing Magpie. While here, they heard from curator/co-owner Mary Bordeaux about the exhibition Responsibilities and Obligations: Understanding Mitakuye Oyasin, a tour of artist studios, hands-on printing with Scrap Iron Press, and a highly educational cultural presentation about the importance of indigenous foods and diet. This included samples of wasna, a "pemmican"-like combination of buffalo, kidney fat, and berries.
We loved having Roberta and the whole crew here, and appreciate the community support!
