The gallery is planning to give visibility and recognition to contemporary Native American Arts and to emerging and promising artists, already well established in their community, their region or their country but not yet well known on the international scene. In this new gallery, they are offered a possibility to exhibit in a major European capital city, in the center of Paris.

Well known artists with established reputation in other artistic centers such as Santa Fe, Milan, New York, Canada, Basque country, Corsica, Eastern Europe... as well as personalities from other fields with artistic talents will exhibit at the Gallery ORENDA.

For ORENDA, the key is to create cross-cultural encounters between artists with a common ideal: opening up new visions and exchanges between cultures.

The exhibitations are organised around common themes, following in the footsteps of a long established tradition by Galerie XX Siècle.

The shows follow thematic patterns. In 2009, exhibitions were organized around seven concepts: Artists from the East who have selected Art in Paris, Lights of Mexicos, Destiny of a man...

N. Scott Momaday and the Sense of the Sacred :
 A Native Poet and Artist, a Universal Voice

By Joëlle Rostkowski

Preface by Philippe Ratte,
Introduction by W. Richard West Jr

 

This book brings a deeply informed international perspective on the work and life of N. Scott Momaday, UNESCO Artist for Peace, poet, novelist, storyteller, playwright and painter.
In 1969, first American Indian to win the Pulitzer Prize for House Made of Dawn, Momaday paved the way for the recognition of several generations of gifted Native American writers.
Momaday’s voice has contributed to a better understanding and greater visibility of Native American cultures, communities, and traditions beyond regional and national borders.
In his capacity of Artist for Peace at UNESCO he became an emblematic figure of the cultural renaissance of Native Americans and of Indigenous rights on the international scene.
This book puts in evidence Momaday’s role as an emissary of Native values and his contribution to intercultural dialogue. Richly illustrated, it presents some of his most significant drawings, paintings and etchings. The combination of poetry and visuals brings to light the complementarity of both modes of expression in Momaday’s work.

A brilliant and moving volume insightful and beautifully written…

Ethnohistorian Rostkowski (School of Higher Studies in Social Sciences, Paris) has assembled a series of interviews with 15 prominent indigenous people. In this reviewer's experience, books on "remarkable Native Americans" often emanate from a theorized or believed view of indigenous peoples existing in tropes of decline. Here, Rostkowski provides an interesting glimpse into the thoughts of prominent indigenous writers, activists, and artists, each speaking to the centralized theme of the work--survivance. Survivance is based upon Gerald Vizenor's methodology in his work, research, and writings. Defined by Rostkowski, survivance "is the continual assertion of nonterritorial Native sovereignty, which ... as the condition of their lives as artists, writers, journalists, lawyers, and activists" informs readers. These interviews shed light on how diverse Native American peoples, cultures, and beliefs are in the modern era. The interviews encompass many views, critiques, and thoughts on how people move forward in the future based on what has already been experienced, learned, and remembered. Those interviewed and many others have aided coming generations in raising up frameworks based on survivability and seeking to negotiate present sustainability, all while seeking revitalization of indigenous cultures and epistemologies. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General and undergraduate libraries. -- K. J. White, SUNY Oswego
