Nocona Burgess Kwihnai Natsu (Eagle Medicine): Power and Protection August 18 - Sept. 1, 2017

|

It’s here. Indian Market, Santa Fe’s high point of the entire summer, kicks off officially with Friday’s Best of Show announcements and a luncheon. From there on, the activities continue nonstop through Sunday afternoon. The artists, performers, and designers bring forth a variety of unique creations that will tantalize your eyes and ears. Indian Market fans from around the world make this an annual ritual. They connect with old friends at various long-established meetings spots. There is an exchange of scouting reports, each person reporting on newly purchased treasures or planned acquisitions. What thrills me is that I see so many locals who make a point of being at Indian Market. Of course, the entire town will be buzzing with art openings Friday night, and there’s a lot of musical entertainment throughout the weekend. If you want to be a tourist in your own town, this is the weekend to do it. It’s also the grand crescendo of the summer season. By Monday morning the Plaza will be very quiet, as if all of this never happened. Don’t let it happen without you.

the Zuni Show and the Keshi Foundation Summertime in Santa Fe—the city is abuzz with visitors and locals alike, enjoying everything the City Different has to offer. The main draw in August is, of course, Indian Market. On the north side of downtown, however, there is another movement brewing, one that provides a breath of fresh air and value that extends beyond the immediate: The Zuni Show and the associated Keshi Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. According to Bronwyn Fox, owner of Keshi: The Zuni Connection, “We [Fox and her mother, Robin Dunlap] decided we were going to do it [the first Zuni Show], and that was what really projected us into action as far as establishing the nonprofit foundation; we saw this need for the Zuni Show.” The Zuni Show, now in its second year, is held Saturday and Sunday at the Scottish Rite Center, only a few blocks from the Plaza, during Indian Market. With over 120 Zuni artists from Zuni Pueblo expected, the event has grown since its inaugural show last August. Fox notes that “. . . the value is there [inherent in the work]—but we’re promoting the Zuni artwork in an effort to get the message out there that this is the best of the best.” In fact, over 80 percent of the population of Zuni makes their living from art. In addition to artists of all stripes, this event will feature Zuni dancers, with a special harvest dance first thing Saturday morning, and music, including Fernando Cellicion (Zuni) and his dance group, award-winning musicians Shelley Morningsong (N. Cheyenne/Dutch) and Fabian Fontenelle (Zuni/Omaha), educational videos, panels, and talks, plus Zuni tamales and other food. The Keshi Foundation is now a multifaceted entity. What started as a way to assist the Zuni people, including helping with emergency situations, has blossomed into numerous ideas. Thoughts include opening a retail incubator at Zuni, supplying a tool bank for artists to utilize, and a proposal for a well-stocked shop selling raw materials and supplies for the artists. Fox confirms, “I heard from artists that they would be very happy if they had an immediate source to invest in more materials.” And, the possibility of someday having a workshop where Zuni artists could teach both Zunis and non-Zunis is not out of the question. Fox continues, “We have a big vision about helping Zuni take back Zuni for themselves—to serve the artists, to serve that incredibly unique artistic community.” Take some time over the Indian Market weekend to visit the Scottish Rite Center to see the art, meet the artists, and learn more about the Zuni culture. “Get there early, bring lots of money, and stay all day!” laughs Fox.—Amanda Jackson

Coe Foundation open house

e vent In a state rich with institutions boasting historic legacies, the Ralph T. Coe Foundation is making a strong impression as a relative newcomer. Named for Coe (1929–2010), a museum professional and collector of Indigenous art, the research center and museum opened its doors four years ago with a mission to increase public awareness, education, and appreciation of Indigenous art and culture worldwide. On August 17, 11 am–4:30 pm, the Coe Foundation hosts an open house with Santa Fe Indian Market legends the Growing Thunder family. Joyce Growing Thunder (Assiniboine/Sioux), her children, and grandchildren have consistently won top Indian Market awards, including several best-of-show prizes. The famed family will be available to interact with visitors in an intimate setting while showcasing new work. The Coe Foundation is also showing Catch 22: Paradox on Paper, which will remain on display through March of 2018. The exhibit features a selection of provocative works of contemporary art on paper from the collection of Edward J. Guarino. Guest curator Nina Sanders says, “These works are a manifestation of the complexity and paradoxical nature of Native peoples’ lives as they exist today.”—Efraín Villa

Yellow Bird Dancing Tony Duncan

by Anne Maclachla n

Tony Duncan (Apache/Arikara/Mandan/Hidatsa) is also known as Yellow Bird Dancing (Yellow Bird is a family name). He grew up hoop dancing, beginning at the age of 5, when his father, Ken Duncan, Sr. (Apache), gave him his first hoops. Ken and his wife Doreen (Arikara/Mandan/Hidatsa) founded a family troupe under the name Yellow Bird Indian Dancers, and the group rapidly found international success. The family members have performed at the White House, the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian, the Billboard Awards, and on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. A fivetime world-champion hoop dancer himself, Duncan—along with his brothers—is an eagerly awaited annual performer on the Santa Fe Indian Market stage, and dances frequently at the Heard Museum. Tony’s wife, Violet (Plains Cree/Taino), and young daughters Manaya and Nitanis all perform the traditional fancy shawl and women’s jingle dances, while son Naiche is following in his father’s hoop-steps, so to speak, using the same hoops first passed along from his grandfather to his father. Tony and his brother Kevin Dakota Duncan were featured in Nelly Furtado’s 2012 global hit “Big Hoops (The Bigger the Better),” blending the energy of traditional hoops and lively hip hop with mesmerizing results. In June, Duncan reunited with Furtado in Winnipeg, Manitoba, for a live show at the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network Aboriginal Day Live in Winnipeg. Also a musician, Duncan composes for and plays Native flute. Dance and music embody much more than the presentation, says Duncan. There’s a deeply spiritual aspect that precedes the action of dance or of playing the flute, and it underlies each step and every note. Duncan explains the significance of honoring the Four Directions and the spirits represented, and says he is mindful of them as he proceeds. Further to that, when composing for the flute, he tries to dedicate the music to a family member. Certainly, the song Tony created to woo Violet always melts the audience, while the bright piece composed for his son captures the joyful lightness of childhood. Duncan is now moving more fully into the backstage areas of composing and production. With his fifth album for Canyon Records, Purify, he says his music is more meditative, reflecting the beauty that surrounds him. He hopes to take the listener on this journey to a more soothed state, away from the city and stresses of modern life. In a departure from his previous duet albums with guitarist Darrin Yazzie (Navajo), Tony accompanies himself on the traditional Apache rivercane flute and the northern-style cedar flute, an instrument used by his mother’s people. “[The cane flute] has a softer feel; a higher pitch, like a bird,” he explains, while the cedar one “has a sharp edge. It’s deeper, louder, with more resonance.” The cedar necessitates a more controlled approach to breathing, which Duncan finds calming. For the listener, this is also very effective. The layers of cane and cedar tones produce a peaceful experience on this journey to a simpler state of mind. Tony Duncan will be performing on Saturday, August 19 at 9 am on the Plaza Stage, and at 3 pm at the outdoor Convention Center Stage.

Monte Yellow Bird Manitou Galleries, 225 Canyon, manitougalleries.com August 16, 10 am –4 pm, presentation at 2 pm August 18, 5–7 pm, presentation at 6 pm New to Manitou Galleries, the stunning, traditional ledger art of Monte Yellow Bird (Arikara/Hidatsa) is unlike anything else hanging on the walls. Seemingly familiar scenes of horses and warriors, hunting, tipis, courting couples, and other subjects are illustrated on ledger pages, sheet music, receipts, bills, and mortgages, but beneath the obvious lies deeply seated meaning, which imbues each work with a vibrant energy and a story that Yellow Bird longs to tell. “The idea of ledger art is beginning to gain popularity among mainstream collectors, historians, etc.,” he says. “It’s always been my feeling that being able to depict who we are as a people is really important, because we’re really telling the stories and sharing the memory of our past generations.” Yellow Bird was admitted to the Institute of American Indian Arts at the age of 16. These days, he incorporates academic color theory and symbolism into his work as well as stories and other significant influences that derive from his culture, history, and life experiences. “The concept [for the work], for the most part, is—I wouldn’t say sporadic—but I would honestly say divinedriven, really,” he notes. Each piece of ledger art takes him anywhere from eight to 40 hours to complete. Yellow Bird enthuses, “So as you begin to be able to understand not only my theory or my stories, you get to see how it applies to us as human beings.” It’s well worth noting this when viewing Yellow Bird’s work: not just to admire it, but to consider the history and the stories. It is a deeply engaging experience.—Amanda Jackson August 17, 2017 NOW 11

As the owner of the Carico Lake, New Lander, Falcon, and Badger turquoise mines, Sunwest Silver keeps hundreds of artisans from Albuquerque to Tibet supplied with stone. Since 1970, Sunwest Silver has been selling silver and stone, buying back the jewelry made from the materials, then supplying stores across the land with Native-made jewelry. Sunwest on the Plaza sells the work of about 120 jewelers, all but a few Native. They also carry pottery, a few weavings, and Ojibwe totems. The other section of the store preserves Dressman’s tradition of selling T-shirts, sodas, and souvenirs of all sorts. Sunwest will celebrate their grand opening August 17 at 5 pm with a ribbon cutting. Native artists will be in the store throughout Indian Market weekend.—Lisa Van Sickle

Kwihnai Natsu (Eagle Medicine): Wyandot Floral, Power and Protection pigment on clay, Giacobbe-Fritz Fine Art 16 x 13" 702 Canyon, giacobbefritz.com August 18–September 1 Reception August 18, 5–7 pm Giacobbe-Fritz presents 20 new works by Nocona Burgess (Comanche) in Kwihnai Natsu: Power & Protection. This exhibition explores the representation of the eagle in Native American culture. The majestic raptor has been revered for its power and spirituality throughout history and across many cultures, and there is a strong symbolic connection between man and the eagle. Eagle feathers were worn in the hair and on war bonnets, and were also used on shields, fans, and other ceremonial items. Burgess, originally from Lawton, Oklahoma, is the great-great grandson of Chief Quanah Parker. Coming from a family of artists, he knew he had “no choice but to pursue art.” Burgess also writes poetry and music, and in 2001, released a CD of his flute music.—AJ

Coiled Amazement Andrea Fisher Fine Pottery Above: Nocona Burgess, Quanah with Eagle Fan, 100 W San Francisco, andreafisherpottery.com acrylic on canvas, 36 x 24" August 17–21, Reception August 17, 5–7 pm, Demonstration August 18, 10 am –4 pm Andrea Fisher Fine Pottery opened in April, 1993. Fisher had previously worked as a buyer for the Case Trading Post, and although her knowledge base was broad, she decided to go deep in her own business, carrying only pottery. The gallery stocks mainly Native American pottery from the Southwest, both by living artists and by matriarchs such as Maria Martinez (San Ildefonso) who lived and worked in an earlier era. As many as six generations of a single family of potters may have pieces at the gallery at one time. Andrea Fisher Fine Pottery also carries pieces from the village of Mata Ortiz, Chihuahua, Mexico, and represents a few Native artists who are not from the Southwest. Richard Zane Smith (Wyandot) exemplifies the beauty and sophistication of contemporary Native pottery. Andrea Fisher presents a show of his work, Coiled Amazement, in August.—LVS 12
