From historic events like forced relocation from traditional lands, to contemporary issues of unauthorized sale of tribal land, energy extraction, and contested landscapes,My Country Tis of Thy People Youre Dying, is in reference to the song of the same title by Buffy Saint Marie, and will feature artworks by contemporary Indigenous North American artists examining the environmental impact of energy extraction, the impact it has on the collective Indigenous psyche, and the political framework that has and continues to enable unsanctioned land deals and the abuse of powers over the people. Artists: Nicholas Galanin, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Steven J. Yazzie, Tom Jones, Winter Count Collective - Merritt Johnson, Cannupa Hanska Luger, Nicholas Galanin, Dylan McLaughlin, Ginger Dunnill.
