From the event organizer:
Warriors who are fearless in battle. Powerful women who are keepers of war shields and their stories. Beaders, artists, mothers, two-spirited people. Hear their voices and many others in Apsáalooke Women and Warriors.
In this exhibition, learn about the history, values, and beliefs of the Apsáalooke (Ahp-SAH-luh-guh) people of the Northern Plains, also known as the Crow. Understand and honor the tradition of “counting coup”—performing acts of bravery. From 100-year-old war shields to contemporary beadwork and fashion, Apsáalooke community members tell their stories and share vibrant works of art.
Apsáalooke scholar Nina Sanders guest curated this exhibition with the support of the Apsáalooke Nation and Native artists and scholars.
