Lakota Warrior Traditions” opening at Studio San Giuseppe
“Lakota Warrior Traditions,” an exhibition of contemporary Lakota artworks illustrating traditional methods the Lakota used to transform themselves into fearsome warriors, opens at The Studio San Giuseppe Art Gallery at the College of Mount St. Joseph Nov. 2 and runs through Dec. 7.
The artworks and artifacts included in the exhibit encompass a variety of media: painting, sculpture, quilt making, quillwork, beadwork and leatherwork. A selection of artworks and artifacts are on loan from The Heritage Center, Pine Ridge (SD) Indian Reservation.
This exhibit parallels an ongoing relationship with the Mount’s Departments of Religious Studies and Behavioral Sciences, the Holy Rosary Mission (Pine Ridge) and the Lakota people. Students and faculty members have traveled during the past 12 summers to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation for a Religious Studies/Anthropology class where they have immersed themselves in the cultural and spiritual atmosphere of the Lakota people. Professor John Trokan, D. Min., chair of the Department of Religious Studies and Susan Labry Meyn, Ph. D., consulting ethnologist to different museums in Cincinnati and adjunct professor at the Mount, lead the class and field experience for both undergraduate and graduate-level students.
This current exhibit follows the exhibits “Lakota Star Quilts” (1998), “Contemporary Native American Art: Mitakuye Oyasin” (2000), “Wounded Knee” (2003) and “Tiyospaye: An Extended Family” (2004).
The Lakota people come from a different social, economic, and political background with different languages, views and beliefs – tribal identities with deep roots. This is an opportunity to walk in their footsteps, to see what they see and feel what they feel.
A reception honoring Lakota guests – Linn Cross Dog, Lakota educator and director of transportation for the Red Cloud Mission at Pine Ridge, and Ivan Long, Lakota educator, artist and horse trainer (originally from Pine Ridge, now living in Montana) – will be held from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 2. The reception is open to the public.
In conjunction with this exhibit, the College of Mount St. Joseph will also host a viewing of the movie “Skins” (released in 2002) at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30 in the Corona Room (Seton Center). The film is about the relationship between two Sioux Indian brothers living on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The movie will be followed by a discussion question/answer session with Linn Cross Dog and Ivan Long.
