18 notes Jaune Quick-to-See Smith,Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, 2012
_____________________________________________
“My point is I want people to know we’re alive!  Collectors only want the old stuff.  They don’t buy the contemporary stuff, some of which is so beautiful (her voice slipping to a whisper), so well crafted.  They keep talking about the Vanishing Americans, but we’re everywhere, and we find one another.  But we’re low-key, we don’t have a Martin Luther King, and so we get overlooked.”
