Morrison later adopted that signature Indian motif, the totem pole,
which he reinterpreted in modernist sculptures. His accomplishments

“The Art of Indigenous Resistance”
The Art of Indigenous Resistance is a
traveling exhibition of work by 20 Indigenous artists co-curated by
All My Relations Gallery and Honor the Earth. The exhibition is made
of both prints and original works of art that highlights Honor the
Earth's 31 years of Indigenous outreach and community resistance. In
correspondence with the art and activism theme, we are excited to
also include paintings from the Minneapolis community.
Visual art plays an important role as
it has the ability to stimulate and encourage a unifying perspective.
Through art, it can evoke emotion, tell stories, inspire and
motivate. When channeled as a vehicle it carries issues of
consciousness where it can become a catalyst for meaningful change.
