A Conversation with Dakota Mace
Dakota Mace, as a Diné (Navajo) artist, focuses in her work on translating the language of Diné history and beliefs. She recently curated Reclaiming Identity, an exhibit of 25 Indigenous artists from across the U.S. and Mexico at the Trout Museum of Art in Appleton. In her own work, Mace draws from the history of her Diné heritage, exploring the themes of family lineage, community, and identity. Her work pushes the viewer’s understanding of Diné culture through the use of alternative photography techniques, weaving, beadwork, and papermaking.
