Path Breakers

The Master Artist title was changed to Distinguished Artist. Kay WalkingStick (Cherokee Nation) was named as Distinguished Artist among the Fellows. She was the first female Native American artist to be given the Fellow designation within the Eiteljorg Fellowship.

Kay WalkingStick (Cherokee Nation, born 1935), 'Le Alpi e Le Gambe', 1999, oil and gold leaf on wood, 36 x 72 in., Museum Purchase: Eiteljorg Fellowship
Hulleah J. Tsinhnahjinnie (Taskigi/Diné, born 1954), 'Portraits Against Amnesia, Hoke-tee', 2002, Digital Platinum Lambda Print, 30 x 20 in., Museum Purchase: Eiteljorg Fellowship

Addressing Issues

  I like addressing issues that are swept under the rug because they are uncomfortable to address. I think visually a piece can incorporate multiple views about an issue, social issue like racism, like gender issues, like misogynist views, about traditionalism, about inter social issues that need to be addressed and looked at.”
