Heritage Center Plans Community-influenced Art Project Focusing on Connection to Horse

The Heritage Center's mission is to foster creative opportunities for, and understanding about Native artists and art, focusing on Lakota artists and their communities.

Today, The Heritage Center is taking that mission to the next level with the announcement of their community-influenced art project focusing on the connection between the Šúŋkawakȟaŋ Oyáte (the Horse Nation) and Native peoples of the northern plains.

“This project, which will develop through an artist-led, community-influenced process, will provide a platform for Native artists to express themselves and their culture in an authentic voice,” says Jose Rivera, director of The Heritage Center.
