Tribal Tributes 

When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Feb. 29
We’re expanding the notion of American identity beyond the paradigm of the WASP male just in time for the November elections, though not without angry buzzing from the old colony. Keith Secola is an American Indian of the Ute and Bois Forte Ojibwa tribes, and an artist now living in Oakland. The Uncompahgre were one of eleven bands of Utes living on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies. In 1881, they were relocated to the Utah Indian reservation, hundreds of miles away. Secola examines this forced exodus (for which Utah’s San Miguel County has apologized) with historical materials — archival photographs, scrapbooks, textbooks — to which he has added contemporary elements. A pair of digital portraits — photographs printed on collaged books — commemorates tribal champions Maria and Ruben Cesspooch. In contrast are Secola’s painted versions of European classical-style images of native Indians, and skateboard decks celebrating past and present Uncompahgre heroes.
