Indian Art is American Art

In this episode of the Nasher Museum Podcast, you’re listening to Danny Bell (Lumbee/Coharie), president of the Triangle Native American Society and retired program coordinator for the Curriculum in American Indian Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. “American Indians are alive and well, and we have many stories to tell,” he says. “John Wayne didn’t get rid of all the Indians. We are living and breathing.”
