Regeneración | Rebirth
Indigenous Latinx Exhibit

In partnership with Vermillion Gallery and Bar, yəhaw̓ presents Regeneración | Rebirth. The exhibition features Indigenous artists based in the Pacific Northwest working across media at the intersection of Latinx and Indigenous identity. This month’s exhibit is an ode to spring and the opportunities granted to our spirit for renewal.

The diasporic experience of Indigenous Latinx people takes on many forms, whether it’s knowing that the border crossed us or not knowing our specific Indigenous tribal ancestry because of colonization. What we know is that Latin America and Turtle Island (present day North America) is home to hundreds of Indigenous languages and as many nations. The artists featured in these exhibits identify with their Indigeneity because this is who they are, claiming their Indigeneity is a resiliency practice, and their art is one example of how they keep the spirits of their ancestors alive.

The Indigenous Latinx exhibits at Vermillion Gallery run March 14th – June 9th. These exhibits and community events are curated by Jessica Ramirez, who identifies as Indigenous Latinx and Chicana. She is a 15 year resident of Seattle, born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas and is a media maker, events producer, and community advocate.
