What does intergenerational collaboration look like?
Forging Pathways for Future Apsáalooke Feminists
Wendy Red Star
a skype/virtual lecture presented by Decolonize LA
As a mother / daughter artist collaborative duo working in the realm of Native history, identity politics, cultural subversion, and reclamation, Wendy Red Star and her nine-year-old daughter Beatrice Red Star Fletcher probe the colonial thought bubble with intergenerational collaboration and institutional critique. Working with museums like the Denver Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, and Seattle Art Museum Beatrice and Wendy engage the public to decolonize thinking around Native American art and collections through performative tours, interactive activities, and interventionist installations. Intergenerational collaborative work is integral and a means to creating a forum for the expression of Native women’s voices in contemporary art.

at land’s edge is an autonomous pedagogical platform based in East and South Los Angeles that nurtures the voices of cultural producers who are committed to social transformation. We understand pedagogy as not only a method of education, but as a critical space where the processes of teaching and learning, knowledge and action, and self and community are reflexive, interwoven, and oriented toward the liberatory possibilities of a just and democratic world.
DecolonizeLA is an autonomous group made up of Los Angeles-based artists, educators, Indigenous Peoples and activists, and members of HRLA’s Programming Committees. This group recognizes the word decolonize as a process and action word that must center Native/Indigenous people’s autonomy, and the liberation of all oppressed peoples as its goal. Steps toward decolonization include acknowledging the effects of colonial oppressive structures, and demanding an end to the legacy of environmental, physical, psychological, cultural and artistic violence, and opposing the perpetual structure of inequity forced upon us by colonialism and white male hetero-normative supremacy. This group recognizes that many communities are working towards decolonization. We embrace and celebrate this opportunity to honor their work and transform our city.
