Over the course of a year, filmmaker Sterlin Harjo followed a set of Native artists across various practices to propose a simple, yet loaded question: Who classifies Native American art and what does that mean? Among those profiled are musician and composer Laura Ortman, who performed at the 2019 Whitney Biennial; artist and composer Raven Chacon; famed poet, musician and author Joy Harjo; singer and guitarist Micah P. Hinson; multidisciplinary artist and musician Nicholas Galanin; and Bobby “Dues” Wilson, co-creator of the famed comedy group The 1491s. Within their musings and work, Harjo constructs a gentle portrait of creatives asking what it means to push boundaries while also creating work reflective of their own identities as it relates to their own experiences.
