For the fourth iteration of Contemporary Indigeneity, the Great Plains Art Museum sought Indigenous artists addressing issues and themes relevant to the contemporary Native American experience on the Great Plains. A panel of Native American art curators blindly reviewed the submitted works and made selections based on the artwork’s aesthetic merit and contribution to the field of contemporary Native art. The museum and its parent organization, the Center for Great Plains Studies, are committed to increasing the representation of Native artists in their collections, exhibitions, and educational programs. Contemporary Indigeneity plays a key role in that initiative. The Center for Great Plains Studies loosely defines the Great Plains as a region that stretches westward from the Missouri River at Omaha and Kansas City to the Rocky Mountains, and northward from the Texas Panhandle into the Canadian Prairie Provinces.
