"Who Stole the Tee Pee"
2000-10-01 until 2001-01-21
Smithsonian, Museum of the American Indian
New York, NY, USA

This exhibition features 25 historical works from the NMAI collection, and more than 40 works by contemporary Native American artists, Who Stole the Tee PeeNULL examines how contemporary Native American artists have responded to the social, political, cultural, and personal changes of the past 100 years.

who stole the tee peeNULL is a question posed by George Littlechild (Plains Cree). It's another way of saying What happened to our traditions? and it leads to another question: How have Indian artists responded to the changes - social, political, cultural, and personal - that Native Americans have experienced since 1900?

The historical works in the exhibition reflect change as it was happening. They register a blending of ways, Indian and European, in a process that began more than 300 years ago. The contemporary works by Native American artists examine the impact of those changes.

The exhibition is curated by Joanne Bigfeather (Mescalero Apache/Cherokee), Richard W. Hill, Sr. (Tuscarora), and Truman Lowe (Ho-Chunk). It is presented in conjustion with Atlatl, a Native arts service organization based in Phoenix, AZ.
