Notes

Abstract: This study examines American Indian artists’ self-identities and the factors that affect the way they identify. Two American Indian artists living or working in Texas and New York are compared in terms of how they define themselves as specifically American Indian artist. In-depth interviews were used to collect data for the project. Elements of self-identity that emerged from the interviews include the following: (1) art as a form of expression and resistance to domination of American Indians, (2) American Indian artists can correct stereotypes of native people through their art, (3) Indian artists may borrow cultural symbols from different tribes as a way of promoting Pan American Indianism, and (4) art of American Indians can reflect changes in traditions among the tribal people.
