This annual exhibition was established in 1979 to encourage creativity among Native youth, and to help them recognize that the future preservation and evolution of Native culture lies with them. This year, entries focus on COVID-19 and how young people used art as a way of healing and processing their feelings about the effects the pandemic had on them, their families, and their communities. Free for members, or with museum admission.
This month we celebrate Native American Heritage Month with a look at a variety of contemporary works of art by Pueblo, Hopi, and Navajo artists. Much of our collection of art is donated to the Center, and there are beautifully crafted treasures in many of these donations. We honor our Native American tribes here in the Southwest with an exclusive look into our art collection.
Long winter nights were the time for telling stories. Centered on identity and resilience, contemporary storytelling honors oral traditions. Learn about different forms of Indigenous storytelling across the world—from the Pueblos to Australia to West Africa, and from books to visual and mixed media.
Enjoy the spirit of the season at our Pueblo Shop & Stroll. Shop a bazaar featuring Native artists selling handcrafted ornaments, nativity sets, jewelry, art and unique gifts while warming yourself by the bonfire and strolling among hundreds of beautiful luminarias in the IPCC Courtyard. Storytelling, hot cocoa bar, Native dances, and more!
Digital Media Producer, Geoff Kie, will give an overview of the Los Angeles Skins Fest, a Native American Film Festival that takes place in Hollywood during Native American Heritage Month. This episode will feature reviews of films that premiered at the festival, as well as some of Geoff's favorite projects from the event.
enjoy the age-old tradition of storytelling around the bonfire, with Emmett Garcia, Stephanie Oyenque and Shannon Romero each sharing a different Pueblo tale. We’ll also have performances of Buffalo Dances by the Black Eagle Dance Group (Jemez) and the Eagle Dance by Ria Thundercloud (Sandia). Admission for the event is a new toy or clothing item for boys/girls ages 3-18 or three non-perishable food items.
