How Native Americans and First Nations have used the visual arts to articulate their cultural response to European and American incursions.

Native American expressions of resistance, protest, negotiation and diplomacy have taken many forms over the several centuries since first contact with Europeans. This talk looks at the ways in which Native Americans and First Nations have used the visual arts to articulate their cultural response to European and American incursions. Initially, we see this in their self-presentation as subjects of Western portraiture. However, with the emergence of modern Native American art practices, the range of response has deepened and widened.
Dr Stephanie Pratt (Dakota and Anglo-American), formerly Associate Professor (Reader) in Art History at Plymouth University, has been working since 2015 as Cultural Ambassador for the Crow Creek Dakota (Sioux) Tribal Council, Fort Thompson, South Dakota, USA, where she is an enrolled member. Her monograph on the visual representation of Native Americans titled American Indians in British Art, 1700-1840 was published in 2005 by Oklahoma University Press.
