Why would Native Americans believe in the religion of the colonizers? Indigenous followers of Christ sense a deep paradox when asked this question. This is the internal struggle that JUSTart Indigenous gives voice to through presentations by Indigenous speakers who will relate the complex stories contained within the unique context of Native peoples in the former Indian Territory, now Oklahoma. JUSTart Indigenous hopes to serve as the first of ongoing discussions about awareness of how Christianity has played a historic (and continuing) role among our Native peoples.
JUSTart Indigenous will also mark the launch of the latest CIVA traveling exhibition, Altars of Reconciliation, in which viewers will experience contemporary, Native-themed sacred art, personal in their stories but universal in their struggle with eternal questions. The exhibition opens at Oklahoma Christian University.
The venue for JUSTart Indigenous is the spectacular First Americans Museum in Oklahoma City, where you will experience the collective histories of 39 distinctive First American Nations in Oklahoma today. First Americans Museum shares the cultural diversity, history, and contributions of the First Americans through art, history, cuisine and more.
