View works by Native artists from the Upper Midwest who spent six months in residence exploring the collections of the Minnesota Historical Society. The residency program was designed to revive the study of technique, knowledge, and lifeways associated with traditional forms of Native artistry. The artists produced original beadwork, birch bark, and textile pieces that will be on display. Exhibit text will be presented in Ojibwe, Dakota, and English.The Native American Artist-in-Residence program is made possible in part by a grant from the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation.
