The IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) presents Indigenous Futurisms. This exhibition, now available to view online, highlights artworks that present the future from a Native perspective and illustrate the use of cosmology and science as part of tribal oral history and ways of life. The science fiction and post-apocalyptic narratives depicted in these artworks are often reality for Indigenous communities worldwide.
Among the artists in this exhibition are Marcus Amerman (Choctaw) (IAIA 1984); Sonny Assu (Liǥwildaʼx̱w of the Kwakwaka’wakw Nations); Luzene Hill (Eastern Band of Cherokee); Frank Buffalo Hyde (Onondaga/Nez Perce) (IAIA 1995); Elizabeth LaPensée (Anishinaabe/Métis);
