Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading Post, Onamia, This traveling exhibit showcases the innovative nature of Native American artists whose ingenuity promotes cultural continuity. The works span a wide range of practices from the very old to the very new. The artists of Mni Sota provide stunning examples of ways in which Native artists of the Minnesota region continue to embrace the contemporary while supporting tradition. The dialog that emerges between pieces in the exhibit generally categorized as traditional and those categorized as contemporary, highlights the dynamic nature of culture encouraging a broader understanding of tradition. The line that has historically existed between tradition and contemporary begins to dissolve as we recognize that innovation is one of our traditions. Developed by All My Relations Arts of NACDI.
