National Portrait Gallery of the Smithsonian has acquired a photo of Shonke-mon-thi^ bust that I took. I have the story link on my web site. But the mini version is that this Osage chief has finally been recognized by our national museum. #osage #npg #luisdejesuslosangeles #scrippscollege #osagenews
Amazing performance, dance , installation at LAX on sat. To celebrate the closing of Barbara Stauffacher Solomon’s exhibition Relax Into the Invisible, L.A.-based artists Emily Mast and Barnett Cohen present an afternoon of dance and theater inspired by Solomon’s unmatched sensibility.
It seems crazy to see “the Diorama” is still being used to as a form to represent First Nation/Native American cultures? Or am I missing something? It’s a living culture..

All the rage in #paris and New York before it found a home in Pittsburgh. @Carnegie artmuse Label does provide an explanation of #orientalism - I had seen it reproduced, but never in person, so it is one of many historic objects that should be known - just so we never forget the past. Created by Edouard Villeaux in 1867
Shaman’s mask, Tlingit First Nation, 1840-1860 Promised Gift, Audain Collect. If you go to Whistler, B.C. don’t miss this amazing collection of masks. I wish there had been more information on provenance but maybe someone out in Insta-land knows ;) #firstnations #vancouver #whistler #van_biennale @audainartmuseum #audainartmuseum #audain
Can you read this sign? I was just informed it was written in a Musqueam dialect, and can be found near the tribal headquarters of the Musqueam Indian Reserve in Vancouver, B.C. @van_biennale @scrippscollege #musqueamterritory #squamish #firstnations @qwasen thank you 🙏 Debra for the correction and for your generosity ;)
Shooting masks at the Museum of Anthropology in Vancouver. An amazing array of cultures and nations. This mask was sold to the museum in the 1950s and is regularly on view. #vancouver @van_biennale @scrippscollege #firstnations #kwakwakawakwart #photography #kwakwakawakw @kengonzalesday
