To be Indigenous in the modern day is a daunting, if not completely silent task. Few know what that means, and the Indigenous existence has little context to it for most Americans. Gregg Deal has a unique story of these concepts, coupled with his own life’s work as an artist, an activist and critical thinker.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

Gregg Deal (Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe) is a provocative contemporary artist who challenges Western perceptions of Indigenous people, touching on issues of race, history and stereotypes. Through his work—paintings, murals, performance art, filmmaking and spoken word—Deal critically examines issues and tells stories of decolonization and appropriation that affect Indian country. Deal’s activism exists in his art, as well as his participation in political movements.
