Land, Water, and the Indigenous Archive: Art and Activism in the Mississippi River Network
The summer 2022 NCAIS Institute centers on long-held Indigenous relationships to land and water and on recent Indigenous art, activism, and scholarship through which Indigenous peoples are addressing issues of climate change and sovereignty.
