The Native Arts & Cultures Foundation (NACF), whose Center for Native Arts and Cultures now occupies the former Yale Union Laundry building, will present the nationally touring exhibition Protection: Adaptation and Resistance. If you haven't yet seen the historic space, now's the time–NACF celebrates Indigenous artistry and culture with ceremonies, workshops, exhibitions, and more, and the new exhibition's opening night will include a curatorial tour of the Center. Protection: Adaptation and Resistance examines how Indigenous Alaskan artists have fortified their communities in the face of the pandemic, the climate crisis, and assaults on human rights. The show "centers Indigenous ways of knowing," spotlighting traditional stories and collaborative art forms through three themes: Land and Culture Protectors, Activists for Justice, and Sovereignty and Resilient Futures.
