Not Your Princess
Tuesday, August 21, 2018
7 – 8:30 pm
Romanticized images of Kikisoblu (Princess Angeline), taken by Edward Curtis and others, were part of a much broader stereotypical trope that continues to impact present-day representations of indigenous women.
Meet contemporary artists and scholars who resist these colonial narratives, shattering stereotypes and celebrating Native American culture.
