“Where the Waters Come Together” is the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation’s inaugural exhibition at the Center for Native Arts and Cultures in Portland, Oregon. Open through June 30, 2022, the exhibition explores Indigenous perspectives of our relationships to rivers and oceans, with work from Native artists responding to fundamental questions around cultural buoyancy, biodiversity protection, food sources, and material necessities; and the realities of the colonial reshaping of traditional access to waterways and shorelines.
