Commodification and fetishization can turn people and cultures into something that can be purchased and owned. This creates generalizations and strips people of their individuality, histories and cultures. The artists in this exhibition question popular misconceptions surrounding Indigeneity by challenging stereotypes of Native identity, cultures and artistic production.
