Faye HeavyShield: Blood

Faye HeavyShield was born on Alberta's Stand Off Reserve and is a member of the Blood nation. Her minimalist installations are powerful fusions of her Christian and Native backgrounds. After a lengthy hiatus HeavyShield presents a powerful new work, Blood, an evocation of the personal, political and historical realities of the First Nations' experience. Paul Chaat Smith is associate curator at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian and author of Like a Hurricane: The Indian Movement from Alcatraz to Wounded Knee (New Press). His essay intertwines thoughts on the work of Faye HeavyShield and on the opening of National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC.
