Many Americas

The de Saisset Museum’s exhibit of Dugan Aguilar’s images reflects the many ways to be Native Californian.

The way Native people live—and how they are often depicted—aren’t the same thing. The de Saisset exhibit of Dugan Aguilar’s photographs aims to bust the stereotypes by sharing his intimate view of Native Californian life.

Aguilar, a documentary photographer who died this year, captured Native cultures in photographs for 40 years. His work reflects this life as authentically experienced by Native people—veterans, grandparents, even dancers.

She Sang Me a Good Luck Song: The California Indian Photographs of Dugan Aguilar is a partnership with Exhibit Envoy, Heyday Books, and the Native Fund, and was curated by Theresa Harlan, a writer on contemporary Native art and photography, and Dugan Aguilar. It is on exhibit through November 30. Learn more about it on the de Saisset website.
