3óóxoneeʼnohoʼóoóyóóʼ /Ho’honáá’e Tsé’amoo’ėse: Art of the Rocky Mountain Homelands of the Hinono’eino’ and Tsétsėhéstȧhese Nations

The Griffin Foundation Gallery: August 29 to December 15, 2024

Blessing Ceremony and Opening Reception: August 29, 4 to 6 p.m. (Free and open to all! Booking form below)

3óóxoneeʼnohoʼóoóyóóʼ /Ho’honáá’e Tsé’amoo’ėse: Art of the Rocky Mountain Homelands of the Hinono’eino’ and Tsétsėhéstȧhese Nations is the first exhibition at Colorado State University dedicated to artists of the Hinonoʼeino’ (Arapaho) and Tsitsistas (Cheyenne) Nations, whose homelands in Colorado formed much of the land grant that founded Colorado State University.*

The exhibition features Cheyenne and Arapaho art from the nineteenth century to today and probes the relationship between CSU’s founding in 1870 and the violent removal of Cheyenne and Arapaho people from Colorado.

3óóxoneeʼnohoʼóoóyóóʼ /Ho’honáá’e Tsé’amoo’ėse is co-curated by Bruce Cook (Haida/Northern Arapaho descent) from the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming, George Curtis Levi (Southern Cheyenne/Arapaho) of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, and Emily Moore, Associate Curator of North American Art at GAMA. Students enrolled in Moore’s Fall 2023 art history seminar also aided in exhibition development, with the guidance of the co-curators and Tribal Historic Preservation Offices of the Northern Arapaho Tribe, the Northern Cheyenne Tribe, and Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma.

*We acknowledge many other Indigenous Nations who call Colorado home, especially the Ute, whose homelands were also sold to benefit CSU. For this exhibition, we are focusing on the Cheyenne and Arapaho because of their long-standing alliance and their shared treaty history on Colorado’s Front Range.

We invite you to join us for the Blessing Ceremony and Opening Reception for the exhibition on August 29, from 4 to 6 p.m. RSVP and register using the booking form below.
