Tradition ever new

Innovative art sustains Native American culture

The Dakota words "mni sota" can be translated as "clouds reflecting in water." A U of M exhibit uses these words as an analogy for the innovation at play in Native American art since historic times.

Mni Sota: Reflections of Time and Place, at the Nash Gallery through March 15, shows how today's Native artists take what's preserved from past generations and give it new substance and form.
