Developed by the Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies (CAIRNS)
This exhibit is based on a traditional Lakotan narrative about when White Buffalo Woman, an emissary from the Pte Oyate (Buffalo Nation), gave a sacred pipe (White Buffalo Calf pipe) to the Itazipco Oyate, one of seven oyates of the Lakota division of the Oceti Sakowin Confederacy.
Forty-one Lakotan artists, musicians and poets are represented in this show. An illustrated catalog with text and images of the artwork, published by CAIRNS, accompanies the exhibit, which is supported in part by a generous contribution from Alpine Enterprises, Inc. DBA McDonalds.
Dr. Craig Howe, Founding Director of the Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies (CAIRNS), will present a Gallery Talk on Thursday, May 18 at 6:30 PM, with complimentary snacks and cash bar.
This program is free and open to the public.
