In collaboration with the Anchorage Museum\, CAFAM presents This Is Not A Silent Movie: Four Contemporary Alaska Native Artists\, an exhib ition featuring four acclaimed Alaska Native artists whose groundbreaking c ontemporary works examine their Native heritage and mixed-race identities\, and challenge perceptions and stereotypes about indigenous peoples. Featur ed artists are Sonya Kelliher-Combs\, Da-ka-xeen Mehner\, Susie Silook\, an d Nicholas Galanin.

\n

The title This is Not A Silent Movie comes from a quote by Native American writer and filmmaker Sherman Alexie\, who works to move audiences away from narrow and stereotypical views of Native people—a view that Native people had very little influence in shaping.
