Native art is by Native artists drawing on their own traditions

In this episode of the Nasher Museum Podcast, you’re listening to Scott Manning Stevens (Akwesasne Mohawk Nation), associate professor and Director of Native American and Indigenous Studies at Syracuse University. “I think what’s great about the show is the ability to restore part of art history to the larger cannon of Native American aesthetics and arts, make people aware that Native art is by Native artists drawing on their own traditions. They are drawing on personal histories which are embedded in these traditions and reworking materials that have come to West—some quite modern.”
