The exhibition “Modern Spirit: The Art of George Morrison” began the first leg of its multi-year national tour this month at Plains Art Museum in Fargo, North Dakota. The exhibit contains eighty pieces of the prolific Ojibwe artist’s work, from paintings and drawings to multimedia sculptures and collages. “Modern Spirit: The Art of George Morrison” marks the first time a comprehensive collection of Morrison’s art has toured the United States.

The goals of the exhibition are to educate people across the country about Morrison’s work and contributions to the field of modern art as an Indigenous artist and teacher.

Working as a Pediatrician in Native American communities since 1997, I have used photography and writing to share health  success stories in health promotion materials featuring Native American health role models.  So I was very excited when a 2012 McKnight Filmmaking Fellow, Norah Shapiro, offered to collaborate with me on a brief film about the Indian Health Board featuring women from our clinic who volunteered in the interest of public health.

The challenge was to winnow thousands of pieces down to a tiny fraction of what is being archived by AIM’s Interpretive Center, on Franklin Avenue, also near the site of the original offices.

Advocates for Indian women in Minnesota are hailing a decision by Congress to reauthorize and expand the Violence Against Women Act.
For years, the law has supported domestic violence prevention programs aimed at curbing abuse and sexual assault. It also has funded shelters and training for law enforcement. But until now, the law didn’t cover many cases involving American Indian women.
The law signed by President Obama in March will make it possible for tribes to prosecute certain, common domestic abuse cases, said Sarah Deer, a former Justice Department Attorney turned William Mitchell law professor invited by the White House for the signing ceremony in Washington.
