The force is with our people

Not on view

This exhibition, which ran from October 2019 to October 2020 at the Museum of Northern Arizona, featured the work of 25 artists representing more than a dozen Native American groups whose ancestral lands are in the American Southwest. Curated by ethnologist Tony Thibodeau, the works in the exhibition reflect well-known characters and themes from the Star Wars franchise, highlighting the parallels that exist between the films and Native imagery, stories, and experiences. The accompanying catalog includes photographs of work from the show, as well as essays from the museum’s Director, the exhibition's curator, and other scholars.
