New art exhibit at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center focuses attention on obesity, diabetes
In four books, the author and diabetes educator weaves together stories of eagles, coyotes, spinning tales of a return to traditional ways of living that bring about wellness and health. Quotes from the books, along with vibrant watercolor paintings by artists Patrick Rolo of the Bad River Band of Ojibwe, and Lisa Fifield of Oneida—both of Wisconsin—make up an impressive exhibit that combines art, health and storytelling at the Albuquerque-based Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (IPCC).
The exhibit—Through the Eyes of the Eagle—opened on Saturday.
With a well-attended opening dinner that included speakers from health, policy and tribal government backgrounds, the opening reception began what promises to be an exciting four-month display of the exhibit.
