Dancing for the Earth, Dancing for the People: Powwow Regalia and Art of the Great Basin

October 12, 2022 – May 26, 2023

Curator Melissa Melero-Moose (Fallon Paiute/Modoc) presents, “Dancing for the Earth, Dancing for the People: Powwow Regalia and Art of the Great Basin.”

This exhibition features contemporary powwow dance regalia, photography, mixed media sculpture, Great Basin beadwork, digital graphic design and more. Participating artists include Phil Buckheart, Bucky Harjo, Linda Eben Jones, Jack Malotte, Lyndah Steele, Theo Steele, Janice Eben Stump, Chad Yellow John, and Bhie-Cie Zahn-Nahtzu.

“The exhibition is a small view into the powwow culture and how contemporary and historical regalia were never ‘costumes’ to the Indigenous peoples of this continent,” says Melero-Moose. “The contemporary powwow is a social gathering, a competitive dance contest, an art exhibition, a cultural exchange, and so much more. Evolving over the years from traditional tribal ceremony, which continues, and grows stronger, the powwow brings the people together many times each year in healing, dance, drumming and song.”
