The Horse Nation of Ochethi Sakowin
The Horse Nation of the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ explores how horses have shaped the history, spirituality, and culture of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota people of the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ or Seven Council Fires. Curated by Keith BraveHeart, Mary Maxon, and Ashley Pourier, the exhibition is the result of an artist-led, community-influenced project and expands on the 2014 film made by Keith BraveHeart entitled We are a Horse Nation. Artists featured in the exhibition include: Donald Montileaux, Arthur Amiotte, Dwayne Wilcox, Emil Her Many Horses, Dyani White Hawk Polk, Keith BraveHeart, James Star Comes Out, the Two Bulls family (Micheal, Doug and Molina), Marlena Myles, Nelda Schrupp, Jim Yellowhawk, Gwen Westerman, Jhon Goes in Center, Roger Broer, and Mike and Denise One Star.
