"You Are On Native Land" Tote
In January 2020, the Guthrie Theater began convening with a group of Minnesota-based Native artists, now known as the Native Advisory Council. Together, the NAC advises the theater on projects, initiatives and philosophical questions as we work to be in better relationship with the people whose land the Guthrie is on.
“You are on Native land” features a design by NAC member Adrienne Zimiga-January (Oglala Lakota). The lodges with yellow arrows represent that we are all still here and on Dakota land. The medicine crosses represent the resilience of our ancestors as well as the healing and recognition of our tribal communities.
All proceeds from these thoughtfully designed items go to the Ikidowin Peer Education Program and Youth Theater Acting Ensemble housed at the Indigenous Peoples Task Force. This vital, decades-long program incorporates sexual health with theater, creating an innovative form of peer education for Ikidowin youth that gives them skills to protect their own health and share accurate sexual health knowledge with their peers.
