Tribe and community are fundamentals in Jaune Quick-to-See Smith’s (Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation, MT) art and activism. Smith’s worldview is to give back. She calls herself a cultural arts worker and uses humor plus satire to examine stereotypes of American Indian life in contrast to the consumerism of American society. She sees her art as fusion, crossing historical boundaries, mixed medias, and styles. She is internationally known as an artist, curator, lecturer, printmaker, and independent professor. She holds four honorary degrees and two Governor’s Arts Awards from New Mexico and Montana. Smith’s work is in collections at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Missoula Art Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Walker Art Center, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and MoMA.
