Our People, Our Land, Our Images represents the work of indigenous photographers from North America, South America, the Middle East and New Zealand. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view indigenous peoples through the eyes of indigenous photographers. The images presented in the exhibition explore their creators’ connections to their land, community and traditions. The various photographic approaches of the artists challenge audiences to examine the stereotypes, politics and histories associated with indigenous peoples. Fifty-one works and 26 artists are featured in the exhibition, including Jennie Ross Cobb (Cherokee), the earliest known female Native American photographer. This exhibition is organized by guest curator Veronica Passalacqua of the C. N. Gorman Museum at the University of California, Davis, and is a program of ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance, with the Oklahoma Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
