Pearl City, Hawaii — Pearl City fourth-graders recently visited the Freeport Art Museum for a tour of the Native American Gallery. Students learned about different tribes in class and came to the museum to see artifacts from those tribes. They finished the trip by creating a hands-on project of a parfleche, a Native American pouch.

The original images were taken by American photographer Edward Curtis at the turn of the 20th Century. Curtis’s goal was not just to photograph but also to document Native American traditional life. They have recently been painstakingly colorized by Anthony Malesys, 26, from Lille, France.

That one of the two artists who fall into this categorical designation is not officially a registered member of any tribe, despite his longstanding claims to Cherokee heritage (Durham), and the other is of mixed African-American and Native American ancestry (Prophet), is an indication of the magnitude of the problem.
It is through this lens that one must view the work of Fritz Scholder (1937–2005), a leading, if controversial, member of the New American Indian Art movement of the 1970s known for his bright paintings of Native Americans and other subject matter, sometimes portrayed in a Pop or Abstract Expressionist aesthetic. He is one of few Native artists in the 20th century to have achieved widespread recognition in the mainstream American art world.

Thirty members of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe, ranging in age from 1 to 70 years old, live in a cluster of trailers on 42 acres of land that is zoned for a single household. After decades of surviving private and government takeovers of their land, they set up a community in a village the tribe calls Tuimayalii, in the Jones Valley of Shasta County. But the county’s Board of Supervisors in June passed a bill that penalizes Jones Valley households that use more than 225 gallons of water a day.
