In collaboration with the Chapter House, an art and community nonprofit led by Indigenous women, the Yale University Art Gallery presents a conversation between Jonah Yellowman (Diné), spiritual advisor to Utah Diné Bikéyah (UDB) Native-led organization, and Sháńdíín Brown (Diné), the Henry Luce Curatorial Fellow for Native American Art at the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, Providence. Emphasizing intergenerational storytelling and knowledge sharing, this virtual program highlights Yellowman’s experience living on the Navajo Nation, his work with UDB, and his artistic practice and hobbies.

A recording of the conversation will be available on the Gallery’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/yaleartgallery) and the Chapter House’s website (https://www.thechapterhouse.org). Offered in conjunction with the exhibition Fazal Sheikh: Exposures. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund.

Closed captions will be available in English.
