May 1st 2017 "Mirror Shields", Indian Month Kick off March

Hello, my name is Rory Erler Wakemup, director of All My Relations Arts (AMRA). I am looking for 300 volunteers to march these “mirror shields” on May 1st, Gather at Cedar Field at 9am, march for a mile to the MAIC and eat a free lunch.


Wakeump, who is the director of All My Relations Gallery, which is run by the Native American Community Development Institute (NACDI) in Minneapolis, is longtime friends with Hanska. Recently, Hanska was a featured artist in All My Relations’ “On Fertile Ground” exhibition. During that show, AMRA and Forecast Public Art hosted a workshop making mirror shields.
