On today’s show, we talk with Graci Horne (Sisseton Wahpeton Dakota and Hunkpapa Lakota/Dakota) who is a multi-disciplinary artist specializing in painting, printmaking, puppet making, photography, film, and poetry. Graci Horne is also the story keeper at the Mnisota Native Artists Alliance, a Native-led initiative formed to develop, protect, and promote expressions of Native art.
Graci Horne holds a degree in Museum Studies from the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM.
