Honor the Earth sponsors traveling art exhibit


Honor the Earth, the environmental advocacy organization founded by Winona LaDuke, is sponsoring a traveling art exhibit that explores Native environmental themes.

"Impacted Nations" is a collection of more than 50 paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture from more than 40 Native artists. The works examine how cultural and spiritual beliefs sometimes clash with political and economic forces.

A series of images by Pawnee/Yakima artist Bunky Echo-Hawk Jr. features Native people in gas masks at industrial sites. Echo-Hawk grew up near the Hanford Nuclear Reservation in Washington, which was built on land taken from tribes.

The show runs through April 15 at Ancient Traders Gallery in Minneapolis before heading to New York City. Other dates are being planned.
