The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) exhibit “Charlene Teters: Way of Sorrows”—which addresses current issues such as forced migrations and the US-Mexico border crisis—closes today. However, the installation remains available to view virtually.
IAIA Academic Dean and noted artist, educator, and activist, Charlene Teters (Spokane) said in regards to her show, “The caravans of refugees coming to the USA's southern border are part of an uninterrupted history of forced migrations and trails of tears. Those who deny these ‘huddled masses’ on the US-Mexico border do so, in part, to deny the obvious—man-made climate crisis may soon make refugees of us all. No wall will protect us from the wrath of a dying planet.”
