Breaking ground in the gentrified neighborhoods of North Portland, One Flaming Arrow, an Indigenous fueled Inter-tribal Art, Music, & Film Festival, will reclaim Indigenous Chinook land for a two-week festival in the City of Roses. One Flaming Arrow is being curated by the collective R.I.S.E: Radical, Indigenous, Survivance & Empowerment and received local support through Portland Institute of Contemporary Art’s (PICA) annual Precipice Fund Grant. One Flaming Arrow is working with local artist/curator Gabe Flores, and will reclaim Flores’s alternative art venue, Surplus Space, as “INDIAN LAND” for the duration of the festival (June 2nd – June 14th, 2015). Surplus Space will host multiple events: visual art exhibitions, an Indigenous Info Shop with Native zines and festival merchandise, poetry readings, musical performances, and a mock “Rez Kitchen.”Surplus Space and One Flaming Arrow are proud to present local Indigenous female artists Natalie Ball (Modoc-Klamath), Shilo George (Southern Cheyenne-Arapaho), and Brittany Britton (Hupa). The film festival will happen at the Hollywood Theater on June 5th and 6th. Where One Flaming Arrow will feature Indigenous filmmakers Sky Hopinka (Hochunk), Jeff Ferguson (Spokane), Sydney Freeland (Diné), as well as Dr. Grace Dillon’s collection of Indigenous Sci-Fi films. Focusing on the political and experimental aspects of Indigenous art and culture, One Flaming Arrow hosts Metis artist/scholar Dylan AT Miner leading a low-rider bicycle workshop with NAYA Youth. We are excited to bring an evening of experimental noise composition with collaborating artist’s Raven Chacon (Diné/Chicano) & Laura Ortman (White Mountain Apache) as well as highlight the Burial Ground Sound Collective block party! Please come support local and visiting Indigenous art to celebrate diversity, creativity, emerging, and political! Find out more about these artists and events at our website www.oneflamingarrow.com. Mission Statement: One Flaming Arrow seeks to evolve the dialogue of Indigenous Survivance by introducing a biennial Inter-tribal art, music & film festival to the Portland area. One Flaming Arrow advocates Native expression of autonomy through the warrior spirit. It stands to disrupt the hegemonic white noise of contemporary culture. By focusing on non-conventional exhibition spaces & (non-neo)-traditional Indigenous artists, the festival creates space for the radically political, experimental & emerging.
