Native Arts & Cultures Foundation

Welcome to the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation (NACF) live webinar event, "The Black-Indigenous/Afro-Indigenous Experience." We will be examining the relationships between black and Native cultural identities, notions of community recognition, artistic practice and activism. Audiences will have the opportunity to explore the work of four artists, culture bearers and activists who, through their practices, act as catalyzing agents in our communities and challenge legacies of colonial disempowerment. The artists will reflect upon their roles as leaders in an era of the Black Lives Matter movement in an era of great social and political turmoil.

Natalie Ball (Black, Modoc, and Klamath); she/her; Artist; Chiloquin, OR.
