Today, more than seventy percent of the Native American population in the United States lives in urban areas. There is a flourishing Native presence in New York City, as Indigenous American people are shaping the city's cultural and political institutions, and collectively reclaiming heritage and urban space. Highlighting a mix of contemporary artworks, performing arts, and community memorabilia, Urban Indian: Native New York Now examines the shared meaning of being a Native person living in New York today, as individuals reflect on tribal affiliations, community well-being, personal growth, and intersectional experiences.
