Indigenous Film: “The Last American Indian on Earth"

Feb 10, 2021


View "The Last American Indian on Earth", a performance art piece by Gregg Deal (Pyramid Lake Paiute), which documents what happens when an unsuspecting public is confronted with the flesh-and-blood version of a stereotype. This piece is a window into the funny, sarcastic, truthful, and even emotional journey of an artist using himself as an instrument of awareness. Artist and filmmaker Gregg Deal will discuss the film and his painting, "Defiant To Your Gods" currently on display at the Museum. This program is presented in partnership with the International Institute for Indigenous Resource Management and the Denver American Indian Commission.
