False Traditions, False Idols

Artist Charlene Teeters shines a light on the stereotypical images of Native Americans used in mainstream America. Using “the media of popular culture” as her medium, she works with installation art. Teeters hopes to bring “a voice to the silence” and “visibility to invisible” people. She uses art as a forum to raise the level of debate about stereotyping and racism in modern America.
