Thursday, JUNE 13:  Dakota Access Pipeline (NoDAPL)

Host/guest artist biography:

Sheridan MacKnight (White Earth Chippewa/Hunkpapa Lakota)

"I am a painter and jeweler, living in both New Mexico and California. I attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, where I obtained a BFA in education. I have been participating in Santa Fe Indian Market since the early 2000s and have had the honor of receiving 3 first place, 2 second place, and 2 honorary ribbons for my paintings. With this, I feel my work honors the memory of my relations, because the work is influenced by their strength and reslience. I am known for my ledger art, and have been honored to be in several museum shows about the subject of Plains Indian ledger art and its heartfelt and heroic history.

I am a landowner of tribal land on the Standing Rock Reservation and I’m committed to teaching and inspiring future generations of its sacred symbolism and how we must persevere to keep Unci Maka (Grandmother Earth) as it was in the past and protect her in the future."
