EXCERPT:
The vast majority of slides in this presentation were culled from major American art museums with either huge, or exclusive, Native American collections. This includes: the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) operated by the Smithsonian, the Denver Art Museum, the Heard Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) in Santa Fe, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and a smattering of others.

The presentation begins with art from the past, from early centuries through the 1800s.
We then move into the 20th and 21st Centuries which have seen a tremendous growth in this art work. Although the Native Americans are also very well known for their crafts, the focus of this show is on their art.

The art changed beginning in the 1960s and 1970s, when there were Indian activists with an increasingly assertive approach to Indian rights. The American government, like the Canadian and Australian ones, eventually did a U-Turn on how it regarded native artists as a result of all of these “rights” movements.

The earlier approach was to expect all artists to assimilate what white European male artists had brought over to this country. This governmental U-Turn involved giving up on that idea and instead encouraging the Native American art genre to continue to develop its own art based on its own culture and people. This is why this group, and others, now have their own museums.

As for terminology, as a group the artists are called either Native American artists or American Indian artists. However, among themselves and within their genre, of greater importance is what is their tribe, e.g. Mohawk, Navajo, Apache, Cree, Choctaw, etc., Accordingly, these artists have their tribes listed with their names on their art works.
