"Art is in our blood; for someone native, being an artist is natural."
Indomitably Indigenous is a community showcase that celebrates the identities and talents of emerging Indigenous artists ages 12-25 from the Denver metropolitan area. The Denver Indian Center Inc. (DICI) is an urban cultural gathering place for the American Indian and Alaskan Native communities of the Denver metropolitan area. DICI was incorporated in 1983 to address the unique needs and challenges of the Native American community and has supported our Native youth and community ever since. There, economic growth guidance is offered as well as self-sufficiency programs that empower families, and our elders are honored by providing a space where native culture can be preserved and celebrated. It is in this mission and the DAM's commitment to Indigenous peoples that we have found an alliance to undertake this unique opportunity to stimulate, nurture, and help advance our young artists.
Indomitably Indigenous is on view through January 17, 2023, in the Wonderscape on the lower level of the Martin Building.
