"Heading into the Wind: A Memoir"
New Mexico History Museum
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Please join Jack Loeffler for a book presentation and signing for his new autobiography.

With the temperament of Santa Claus and the tenacity of a badger, Jack Loeffler reveals his compassion and concern for Southwestern traditional cultures and their respective habitats in the wake of Manifest Destiny. Working both as an individual and with comrades--including Edward Abbey and Gary Snyder--he was part of an early coterie of counterculturalists and environmentalists who fought to thwart the plunder of natural resources in the Southwest. Loeffler, a former jazz musician, fire lookout, museum curator, bioregionalist, and self-taught aural historian, shares his humor and imagination, his adventures, observations, reflections, and meditations along the trail in his retelling of a life well lived. In this honest memoir, he advises each and every one of us to go skinny-dipping joyfully in the flow of Nature to better understand where we’re headed.

Native Pottery Demonstration
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
with Helen Bird, Santo Domingo Pueblo

Helen D. Bird is a self-taught master potter who learned about traditional pottery making by watching her great-aunt, whom she only knew as Sah’NaYa. Bird started experimenting with pottery making in 1984. Today, her work is sought by collectors and is housed in museums and local collections. Helen has also continued making utilitarian pottery as well as ceremonial pieces.

Bird was commissioned to create a Native American designed Starbucks travel mug which has been sold world-wide. Although Bird focuses on traditional Pueblo polychrome and micaceous pottery, she has recently added a contemporary flair to her traditional designs. 

Bird takes pride in gathering and processing all natural, local materials including the clays, temper and paints. Her pots are traditionally fired at her family home. All processes are being passed down to her children and grandchildren.

Talk on the Tribesourcing Project with Jennifer Jenkins, PhD
Museum of International Folk Art
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Sunday, March 1, 2020 2:00-3:30pm in the Vernick auditorium.

“Tribesourcing is a digital humanities project, where existing "social studies" films from the American Indian Film Gallery, made in the 1950s and 1960s are re- recorded with new narrations by community members and elders from Native American communities. This “tribesourcing” method allows for identification of local knowledge that might otherwise be lost, as well as providing a rich, community-based metadata record for each film.

Jennifer Jenkins, PhD, Tribesourcing Project Manager, and English Professor at the University of Arizona, will demonstrate the merging of old video and new audio in Mukurtu at Tribesourcingfilm.com and discuss what she has learned in the process of digitally repatriating these midcentury films.”

Join us on Wednesday, March 11, for a special demonstration with Dolores Lewis and her niece, Claudia Mitchell (both Acoma Pueblo). Dolores began practicing pottery making early in her life while Claudia is a relative newcomer, having started in 2013. Both potters benefited from the instruction and assistance of Lucy Lewis, Dolores’s mother, an accomplished and renowned Acoma potter who Dolores credits with helping to show her the way and encouraging her to keep this art alive. Dolores helped Lucy wet burnish and white slip her pots with the rocks she continues to use. Dolores and Claudia are committed to using resources found only at Acoma Pueblo, from the clay to the paints, and the fine yucca tools used for decorating each piece.

Collaborative Art Flag Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment

The celebration is called Her Flag. Her Flag is a giant collaborative art flag. A work-in-progress that’s making its way across the nation, growing stripe by stripe and state by state.  Her Flag will be in Santa Fe, New Mexico on Thursday, April 30th 2020.

Founder, artist Marilyn Artus, sews each state’s stripe, which was designed by a woman artist in that state, onto the flag at a live event in each capital city. This is her “love letter” to all the men and women who worked to pass the 19th amendment and she uses it as a platform to encourage women to exercise their right to vote that so many fought for just 100 years ago.

New Mexico, the 32nd state to ratify, will be represented by the 32nd stripe sewn onto Her Flag, partnered by New Mexico artist Laurel Garcia Colvin, and joined by Michelle Otero; Poet Laureate of Albuquerque and author of Malinche’s Daughter.

Free Museum lobby event with limited space-no food or beverages will be permitted.

The Quilt Project: How Art Translates Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
A Friends of Indian Art Member Event

The Red Quilt Solidarity Project (RQSP) is a national initiative to raise awareness of violence against women and children with a focus on Missing/Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). The RQSP is open to all people who wish to speak out about violence against women and children all over the world. The RQSP was initiated by Tina Sparks as her BFA Senior Project at the Institute of American Indian Arts. The project was publicly launched in February, 2019, and has received numerous panel contributions from across the country. The intention for this project is to be a visual voice to evoke visibility, funding and change for issues surrounding violence against women and children. The long-term goal for the Red Quilt Solidarity Project is to transport and display the quilts/panels on the national mall in Washington, DC, much like the AIDS quilt in the 1980’s. Tonight’s event will be a collaborative presentation of information surrounding issues of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women initiating and inviting community conversation.

Young Artists Balancing Tradition with Contemporary Expression
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
A Friends of Indian Art Member Event

Join us for a panel discussion on the challenges and difficulties facing three young artists as they express their vision through contemporary art while honoring their heritage and culture.  Terran Last Gun (Blackfeet) works in printmaking, photography, and painting.  He is best known for his bold, geometric works that reflect his Blackfeet history and cultural narratives.  Del Curfman (Crow) is a painter known for his work with tribal imagery and cultural exploration.  He investigates his heritage, tradition and humanity through his oil paintings.  George Alexander (Muskogee) is an artist who has created a thought-provoking body of work influenced by his deep appreciation of his own culture.  The imagery he uses comes from his own ideas and how he views the world as he wishes it to be.

A Friends of Indian Art Member Event

Russell Sanchez is a very familiar and lauded name to Native art collectors, most recently taking home the Best of Pottery award at 2019 Indian Market. But you may not know that he is a wide-ranging art collector himself. His historic adobe home sits right on the main plaza of San Ildefonso Pueblo, but he has continued to add on to the space over the years to house his growing art collection. From stunning Venetian chandeliers, to folk art from the around the world, to a wide range of Native art, Russell’s eclectic tastes and interests are on full display at his unique home. Hear how he approaches collecting art from the perspective of being an artist himself.

New Technology in Art: Innovation at the Institute of American Indian Arts
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
A Friends of Indian Art Member Event

Innovation has been a tradition in Native arts from the very beginning. Indigenous cultures have adopted whatever materials or technologies have been available to speak about the things those cultures held most important. From pre-contact ceramic work and shell carving, to the use of trade-beads and European metalworking technologies, to our current era of digital design and fabrication, Native artists have embraced the most current and cutting edge tools to create works of art that speak to the issues that face their people. The Digital Fabrication Lab at the Institute of American Indian Arts, in coordination with its other studios, is working to put those tools into the hands of the next generation of innovative Indigenous artists. The work being produced in conjunction with the IAIA FabLab, from students, staff, faculty, and artists-in-residence, spans an incredibly diverse set of materials, topics, and practices, continuing the long and storied tradition of artistic innovation in Native art. We will hear from Brian Fleetwood (Muscogee/Creek), Assistant Professor in Studio Art at IAIA.
