In this spe­cial repeat edi­tion of First Voic­es Radio,” artist-activist GREGG DEAL (Pyra­mid Lake Paiute Tribe) has been a reg­u­lar guest on our show. Over the years, Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse and Gregg have dis­sect­ed many crit­i­cal issues rang­ing from cul­tur­al appro­pri­a­tion, decol­o­niza­tion, the con­tin­u­ing use of Native mas­cots and stereo­types, and even the annu­al spec­ta­cle Burn­ing Man. In this show, we present Indige­nous Iden­ti­ty and Exis­tence: Fight­ing Era­sure and Racism,” a lec­ture that GREGG deliv­ered at Col­orado Col­lege in Col­orado Springs, Col­orado on March 26, 2018. GREGG’s art includes paint­ings, mur­al work, per­for­mance art, film­mak­ing and the spo­ken word. Much of his work deals with Indige­nous iden­ti­ty and pop cul­ture, and he touch­es on issues of race rela­tions, his­tor­i­cal con­sid­er­a­tion and stereo­type. GREGG’s art has been exhib­it­ed nation­al­ly. He also has lec­tured at many promi­nent edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions and muse­ums, includ­ing: The Den­ver Art Muse­um (CO); Dart­mouth Col­lege (NH); Colum­bia Uni­ver­si­ty (NYC); and the Smithsonian’s Nation­al Muse­um of the Amer­i­can Indi­an in Wash­ing­ton, DC. He is one of the pre­em­i­nent per­for­mance artists of our time.
