Art of Indigenous Resistance is produced by Honor the Earth. A unique national Native initiative, Honor the Earth has worked to raise public awareness of grassroots Native environmental groups for 31 years. Honor the Earth is also dedicated to amplifying the voices of indigenous communities through art and advocacy, showing commitment to restoring a paradigm that recognizes our collective humanity and our joint dependence on the Earth.

The exhibition features the work of leading artists and art-activist collectives from across the nation, whose work creates awareness of the social, economic, environmental, and political issues that affect indigenous people and the world at large.
