Featured Artist: Cannupa Hanska Luger

Thursday, November 15 through- Saturday, November 17
The Museum of Natural and Cultural History welcomes artist Cannupa Hanska Luger for a series of events exploring Indigeneity in the twenty-first century. Raised on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota, Luger is a New Mexico-based, multi-disciplinary artist of Mandan, Hidatsa, Arikara, Lakota, Austrian, and Norwegian descent. Interweaving performance, visual arts, and political action, Luger's work invites us all to engage with Indigenous Peoples and values apart from the colonial lens. 

All events are free and open to the public. 

Luger's ar-ti-fact exhibit will be on view in the museum's Oregon—Where Past Is Present hall through August 2019.


Luger's visit is co-sponsored by the University of Oregon's Art and Design Academic Residential Community (ARC), Center for Environmental Futures, Environmental and Natural Resources Law Center, Native American and Indigenous Studies ARC, and Native American Law Student Association.
