Press Release
For Immediate Release (March 2021)

Fargo, North Dakota – Plains Art Museum and the Indigenous Association announce their collaboration on the second floor of the Museum’s Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity.“The Indigenous Association is very excited about this collaboration. One of our initial goals was to find a space in a central location that allows us to bring Indigenous people together. This collaboration will allow the Indigenous Association to become a place for Indigenous people from Fargo, Moorhead, and the surrounding areas to connect,” said Brandon Baity – founding Board Member of the Indigenous Association.

Creativity Among Native American Artists (CANAA) at Plains Art Museum and the Indigenous Association’s missions both seek to engage the region’s Indigenous Community by co-hosting activities, events, and meetings in the space throughout the year. With the close proximity of their locations, this promises to be both impactful and meaningful for the Indigenous population of Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo and its surrounding region.

The Indigenous Association’s vision is to connect, unite and strengthen the Indigenous Community. Its strategy is to establish a safe & inclusive space worthy of our diverse Indigenous community by collaborating & building capacity through education, awareness, advocacy & respect, sustaining our indigenous programs for future generations.

Plains Art Museum is your nonprofit art museum and education center, supported by over 800 individuals and organizations. The Museum and its Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Center for Creativity are located at 704 First Avenue North in downtown Fargo.
