Visions for the Future: A Celebration of Young Native American Artistsby Native American Rights Fund
Synopses & Reviews
A stunning collection of artwork from around the country, Visions for the Future celebrates contemporary Native American artists and shares their unique views on the 21st century. These provocative works capture the vivid emergence taking shape in the Native American art world as well as the writings by the young artists on their perspectives on Native rights, Native art, and the future of Indian Country. Visions for the Future also features an introduction by acclaimed Lakota author Joseph M. Marshall III. A portion of the book's proceeds will benefit the Native American Rights Fund, the oldest and largest nonprofit law firm dedicated to asserting and defending the rights of Indian tribes, organizations, and individuals nationwide. Founded in 1970, the Native American Rights Fund (NARF) is the oldest and largest nonprofit law firm dedicated to asserting and defending the rights of Indian people. NARF's practice is concentrated in five key areas: the preservation of tribal existence; the protection of tribal natural resources; the promotion of Native American human rights; the accountability of governments to Native Americans; and the development of Indian law and educating the public about Indian rights, laws, and issues. Throughout its history, NARF has impacted tens of thousands of Indian people in its work for more than 250 tribes, and sponsors an annual exhibit to promote young Native American artists. NARF is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, with branch offices in Washington, D.C., and Anchorage, Alaska.
