The 18th and 19th centuries witnessed the rise of two nations in North America on the hunting grounds and homelands of the true First Nations. Non-natives claimed the western grasslands for themselves through guile and theft, mass relocations, purposeful starvation, massacres, assimilation, and internments on reservations. This solo exhibition by a documentary filmmaker/photographer features evocative and provocative images, with historic context, of some Indigenous landscapes in the Dakotas, Montana, Nebraska, Saskatchewan, and Wyoming.
