i was gonna drive to the eiteljorg museum in indianapolis

but instead i think i’m gonna take a $36 megabus ride to DC and visit the national museum of the american indian, plus whatever else i might find pleasing in DC.

AND THEN MAYBE I CAN UPDATE MY NATIVE AMERICAN ART BLOG FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FOREVER. plx.

i wish ledger art checks weren’t completely inappropriate because they’re really cool and i want them.
i love ledger art. the history isn’t good, but it’s rich. i love knowing the story of natives.
also, the native american population is completely invisible here. no one knows about them, no one cares.
but checks… paper that stands in for money capitalising on Native prisoners’ meager, but skilled attempts at capturing the pasts they were violently forced to abandon.
i’d be practicing cultural commodification within the larger context of systematic desentisation of americans to the violence europeans and early americans perpetrated against native people.

but the checks are really cool. :/
