Event Description

How can design education support the understanding and revitalization of tribal visual sovereignty and the inclusion of an indigenous perspective? In this lecture and workshop, Sadie Red Wing, a Lakota graphic designer from the Spirit Lake Nation of Fort Totten, North Dakota, will share her background in design education and advocacy and introduce her research in the origins of Lakota symbols. Learn how symbols reflect and evolve from elements of the landscape and explore how to find meaning in place to shape your own visual communication. After the lecture, explore the creation of your own symbols by reimagining basic shapes that resonate with your own personal history. Each participant will print and take home a commemorative screenprint.
