Winona LaDuke at form & concept

Winona LaDuke- Broken Boxes Exhibition- Form and Concept Gallery- Santa Fe New Mexico

Last night’s opening reception for our Broken Boxes exhibition was a great success! Many of the participating artists were on-site, along with Broken Boxes co-curator Ginger Dunnill, Winona LaDuke of Honor the Earth, filmmaker Keri Pickett and Art of the Indigenous Resistance curator Kim Smith. LaDuke is an American environmentalist, economist and writer, known for her work on tribal land claims and preservation. She spoke to the crowd about her experience as a leader of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests at Standing Rock, and the power of art:

“There is a collapse at many, many levels of society. Those of us who were at Standing Rock saw what that was like, and felt that. We knew what that looked like, both looking down the face of the evil, and then also knowing what it tastes like to be free and to remember who you are. I think about that a lot, and I thank everybody that was there. […] The people at Standing Rock remembered what it was like to be free, and I think a lot of us are remembering what it was like to be free and not be, perhaps, wage slaves. Or just encumbered in the system. We need to be coherent. We need to be those people. To me, that is part of what this moment is about. Art like this, and moments where you get to be conscious and you get to think, and you get to be present, and you get to really figure out exactly where we are in this time. […] Artists remind us of our humanity, because there is so much around us that destroys our humanity and eats it. Here we are, and we can see who we are, and we can see how beautiful we are as human beings. […] It reaffirms our place.”

-Winona LaDuke

“I feel like what I’m trying to do with my art education is figure out ways that Indigenous culture can evolve, and Indigenous artwork can evolve. I think that’s very important, because that’s a huge part of our culture. For some ridiculous reason, we just got lumped into Indigenous art, we just got lumped into anthropological ways of showing our culture.”

“We frequently look outside ourselves for inspiration, especially as artists. When we finish a project, we’re like, ‘I need a new muse, a new inspiration, a new place.’ So we’ll go out and we’ll search […], or we’ll get depressed. We’ll think the muse has deserted us again, and we’ll wait for that spark. What we don’t understand is that we can be our own greatest sustainable energy source.”
