This year’s educational art exhibit from the Center for American Indian Research and Native Studies (CAIRNS) focuses on the articles of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty between the “different bands of the Sioux Nation of Indians” and the United States. 

Contemporary Oceti Sakowin artists, poets and musicians interpret the seventeen articles of the treaty through their works, which are presented alongside the text of the articles. More information on the exhibition can be found on the CAIRNS website:
