she, her, hers

Raven is a Master of Fine Arts student in the School of Art’s Photography program. A member of the Blackfeet Nation, she attended Appalachian State University in North Carolina where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BA in Art and Visual Culture as well as a minor in Anthropology. Her art explores and deconstructs identity at the individual and cultural levels. She is particularly interested in the history of photography, photographic processes, museum politics, the politics of visual culture, the ethics of display, artistic ownership and appropriation, and Native and Indigenous artistic expression. Raven writes that “As an artist whose research arises from experimentation and as someone who communicates through embodied performance, I am interested in the dialogue which the creative process creates with the work itself, me as the creator, and my audience.” Her research focuses on photographing and performing trauma and growth in ways that promote healing for the artist, the audience, and the community. Raven enjoys art, yoga, hiking, exploring, learning, and the scent of Bergamot.
