Join us for an afternoon discussion with two Tongva artists: MERCEDES DORAME is a Tongva artist who uses her cultural history to engage problematics of (in)visibility and ideas of cultural construction. RIVER TIKWI GARZA is also a Los Angeles Tongva artist and a member of the Ti’at Society. Garza’s work draws on traditional Indigenous aesthetics, Southern California Indigenous maritime culture, graffiti, Xicanx culture, and the Los Angeles urban experience.

Hosted by the UCLA American Indian Studies Center.
