Horse Nation of the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ

Exhibitions at All My Relations Gallery, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Two Rivers Gallery

Horse Nation exhibition explores how horses shape the history, spirituality, and culture of the Dakota, Nakhota, and Lakhota people, collectively known as the Očhéthi Šakówiŋ or the Seven Council Fires

Horses serve as allies in hunting and in battle, but are revered for more than their utility. Horses were, and still are, recognized as relatives and are vital members of the community.
