Indian Humor documents through visual expression the contexts of humor among Native Americans of different tribes. The vernacular images represented in this exhibition will help both Indians and non-Indians to redefine negative ideas and humorless approaches to viewing Native America. The artists utilize many approaches. Some images reflect historical events, activities of the trickster, non-Indians playing "Indian", humor found in domestic situations, "insider" private jokes and comical views of contemporary life in general. This is an exhibition the artists are really looking forward to sharing with you, the viewer.
