The 2016 Betty Bowen Award goes to Wendy Red Star!

Raised on the Apsáalooke reservation in Montana, Wendy Red Star works cross-generationally, looking particularly at matrilineal relationships within Crow culture and ceremony. She has critically examined historical portraits of Crow leaders by white photographers and taken apart stereotypical representations of Indigenous women in a variety of popular culture contexts. Her work centers on photography but sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance are also important to her practice.
