Art and Indigenous Community Health

I spent last Friday at the AICHO Complex, in Trepanier Hall for an event about art, health and indigenous communities.

The event was sponsored by the University of Minnesota Research for Indigenous Community Health Center, showing through June 3. The exhibit brings art into dialogues about Re-search, Re-vitalization, Re-clamation, Re-turning, Re-rooting, Re-inventing, Re-transformation.

The event featured art by local multimedia artist Beth LaPensee, among other artists.  (A sample of her work is below.  She was featured in the DNT here.)


The art is hanging in Trepanier Hall, where Lyz Jaakola led a performance by Oshkii Giizhik.


It’s easy to miss Trepanier and AICHO in usual visits to the arts community in Duluth.  I hope you won’t miss the show, even though you weren’t lucky, as I was, to catch the music.
