The support of Indigenous arts and histories has always been a keystone to the mission of SAR. From the leadership and longstanding support of Board member (1932-1964) Tsianina Redfeather Blackstone to the establishment of the Indian Arts Research Center and its artist fellowship program, SAR’s involvement with indigenous issues has shifted over the years. In this keynote lecture, great-grandniece to Tsianina Blackstone and former SAR Board member (2006-2015), Dr. K. Tsianina Lomawaima, will discuss the development of SAR and its relationships with indigenous issues—including challenges and accomplishments—over the last century.
