Comic Art Indigene Panel Discussion.
This talk and panel discussion was recorded May 11, 2008. The introductory talk by exhibit curator Tony Chavarria (MIAC Curator of Ethnology) introduces the exhibit: Comic Art Indigene is a journey into mystery in which Indian artists articulate identity, politics, and culture using the unique dynamics of comic art. This is a new world of American Indian art, full of the brash excitement first seen on newsprint a century ago - sometimes unrefined, often considered crude, but never sterile. Followed by a discussion with two of the artists in the exhibit, the artists Jolene Nenibah Yazzie (Dine) and Jason Garcia (Santa Clara Pueblo).
