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. We will focus on the Mississippi river and its networks, while looking to other water networks and activism for case studies and theoretical insights.
