Posted By Corinne Oestreich July 12th, 2018 Blog



Gregg Deal spoke at TedxBoulder, giving a powerful talk on being Indigenous in Plain Sight. The points he makes in his talk gathered reactions from the audience that resulted in a standing ovation.

“The indigenous existence in Western and American culture is narrowly viewed and accepted with little to no input from actual Indigenous people. Gregg Deal talks about the use of history as a tool while he navigates the restrictions thrusts upon his work as a contemporary artist while challenging those who hear his words to take responsibility for their knowledge and create room for this nation’s First Peoples.”
