The pandemic has brought me much sadness, but also blessings. A couple months ago, my family had lost my aunt to Covid-19. When I first heard the news, I cried so many tears for my aunt. I always hoped she was doing well. It had been many years since I've last seen her. The memories of what she looked like, her voice, and smile echoed in my mind and crumbled my heart. I still really miss her as I am writing this. I deeply wish I can see her and hug her. Just seeing my family has brought me so much comfort, and so is living with my boyfriend. Family has never mattered so much more to me during times like this. All I can believe right now is everything will be okay. #iaiatogetherapart ...

Pandemic Letter—April 9, 2020, 1:42 pm, Anonymous⁣

Dear Reader,⁣

I am writing from a world in which there is no shortage of grotesque heaps of hurt. Assuming that hasn’t gone away, maybe you’re sick of being pat on the head. Maybe you’re sick of being at the receiving end of that hurt. Maybe you’re sick of having to explain why it hurts, or maybe you’re just sick. I take it you’ve heard of COVID-19. Perhaps you’ve been a witness to your grandparent or great-grandparent ranting and reeling about the effect it had on their lives, or maybe told the same stories by your parents. They were stories about how hard they had to work to keep their jobs, or how hard they had to work to educate their children by themselves with countless additional responsibilities. Maybe your elders would say things about how they needed to feel privileged that they had a job at all—from home or at risk. They needed to be grateful that they were slaves to capitalism at the desires of the rich. Maybe your grandparents were children when coronavirus initially began. Maybe your grandparents couldn’t graduate college or high school that initial year. They remember watching their parents struggle to provide, struggle to ration food, some not knowing where their money was coming from after being “guaranteed” their position, but laid off nonetheless. The other side of the coin could be stories of how they remember their parents going out, living as-is, shopping constantly, not wearing masks, or gloves, or caring. Maybe they remember losing someone—a parent, a friend, a child? Maybe they were isolated alone, or without resources. You didn’t live through it, but this is not the depression, 9/11, or the recession of yore. This is different. So much about this disease was unforeseen. It was merciless, fast, suffocating, and unpredictable.⁣

Construction is underway on the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) campus for the new IAIA Research Center for Contemporary Native Arts (RCCNA).

The construction, now simultaneously in phases one and two, has been sectioned into three phases and is looking to be ahead of schedule.

Phase one involves building an extension onto the Academic Building in the back courtyard. The extension will house the Ethnobotany Lab and the Conservation Lab—to make room for the RCNNA in the Barbara and Robert Ells Science and Technology Building—as well as the Digital Fabrication Lab (Fab Lab), and a brand new Cinematic Arts and Technology Film Studio.

For this project, IAIA has teamed with Dyron Murphy Architects and Jaynes Construction. Oscar Tovar from Dyron Murphy Architects has already completed the interior design for the RCNNA space, so once phase one is complete and the Ethnobotany Lab and Conservation Lab are moved to their new homes in the Academic Building, a general contractor can be found to begin phase two—construction of the RCNNA. Phase two, the interior renovation in the Science and Technology Building, involves creating the spaces for the RCNNA, which will include the Archives, the Archives Classroom, and the Collections Classroom.

Once the interior renovation in the Science and Technology Building is complete, the finishing touches will begin in this third phase of relocating the IAIA Archives into its new permanent home in the RCCNA. The RCCNA is funded by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and has been undergoing development for the past three years. This exciting new space will extend IAIA’s objective to study, preserve, and disseminate traditional and contemporary Native American arts, cultures, literature, and history. By consolidating services that IAIA already provides via the IAIA Archives and the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) into one location, the IAIA Research Center for Contemporary Native Arts will provide the opportunity for comprehensive and accelerated research of contemporary Native arts.

On Wednesday, September 29, 2021, the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) welcomed the Ken Mowatt crest pole, “Raven Puts the Light in the Sky,” to the IAIA campus. Traditionally, the raising of a crest pole is a community event, often celebrated with songs, feasts, and performances. In this custom, Geraldine Barney shared an original prayer and musical performance at the event to welcome the pole as it was raised to a place of honor.

The pole, carved from red cedar by master carver Ken Mowatt (Tsimshian/Gitksan) and standing 20 feet tall, depicts how darkness was defeated based on traditional Gitksan stories. “Raven Puts the Light in the Sky” was initially commissioned in 1980 for the Chase Manhattan Plaza in New York City and moved to New York City’s Wagner Park in 1997. JPMorgan Chase has graciously donated it to IAIA as part of the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts (MoCNA) permanent collection.

The Udall Legacy Continues with a New Book Donation from Senator Tom Udall and Jill Cooper

Upon his retirement from United States Senator for New Mexico, Tom Udall continued his family's strong connection to the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) with a donation of books to the IAIA Library. The collection consists of around 40 books on tribal law, Native American art history, and art criticism. The new collection is located next to his father, Stewart Udall's donation, and Lloyd Kiva New's donation. Each of these three collections is accompanied by a plaque in honor of the donor.

To celebrate the donation and the Udall legacy, IAIA held a reception on August 19 at which IAIA Board Members, students, faculty, and staff gathered to show their gratitude to the Udall family. Senator Tom Udall's wife, Jill Cooper, was awarded an IAIA Pendleton blanket during the ceremony.

Stop by the IAIA Library to browse or borrow the newest collection. The IAIA Library hours are Monday–Thursday from 8 am–8 pm, Friday from 8 am–5 pm, and Sunday from 12–8 pm.

Over the course of the past 18 months, the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) community has demonstrated remarkable resilience in the face of adversity caused by the Pandemic. The cooperation and respect shown each other has resulted in the safest environment possible in which students can continue to learn, grow, and create.

IAIA students have confronted multiple challenges during the COVID-19 Pandemic—in many cases, their communities have been disproportionately impacted by the Pandemic—yet a high percentage of our students have remained focus on their academic goals. In fact, student enrollment has stabilized, and the number of graduates increased in 2020 and 2021. This accomplishment is a tribute to the commitment of our students, faculty, and staff to IAIA’s fine arts mission.  

The IAIA community has taken personal responsibility for keeping our campus safe through their compliance with our COVID mitigation protocols. In addition to face coverings, maintaining social distance, and requiring COVID-19 vaccines for students attending in-person classes, we have implemented weekly COVID-19 surveillance testing in a safe and convenient on-campus location. 

We also have encouraged vaccinations for faculty and staff. As a result, 98% of students, faculty, and staff are vaccinated. The recent surge in positive cases caused by the delta variant, however, has reinforced the need for increased vigilance, mitigation measures, and communication…

It's Thunder Bee Thursday, and the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Land-Grant program is creating a buzz on campus! As the caretakers and farmers of the IAIA food gardens, greenhouse, orchard, and apiary, the IAIA Land-Grant Department is finding ways to give back and get our IAIA Community involved.

This Spring 2021, Land Grant established multiple honey bee hives on campus. These “Thunder Bees”—so lovingly named after the IAIA Thunderbird—help to pollinate the IAIA gardens, orchard, and surrounding neighborhood, as well as provide fresh honey and beeswax. Throughout the month of September, the Land-Grant Program beekeepers are hosting “Thunder Bee Thursdays,” and will take students, staff, and faculty on a guided tour through the campus beehives. Each session covers basic safety and approach recommendations and gives participants a look inside the beehives. Protective beekeeping gear is provided and participants get a unique up-close and hands-on experience with our campus pollinators.

To learn more about the IAIA Land-Grant Program and their beekeeping journey, visit www.iaia.edu/outreach/land-grant/ or follow the link in our bio.

Today is #NationalDogDay, did you know the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Library hosts therapy dog events throughout the semester for the IAIA Community? With the return of students to campus, they hope to hold more events in the Library this semester—including more therapy dog sessions with our furry friends.

In addition to events, after nearly a year-and-a-half, the IAIA Library has reopened the book stacks for browsing and will return to regular functioning hours for the Fall 2021 semester. Following the campus closure in March 2020 due to the global health crisis, the library had a modest reopening last summer. This reopening included closing off the book stacks, decreasing hours, offering curbside pick up, delivering books to students in quarantine, and transitioning to offer more services online. During this transition, they provided virtual reference with a librarian via live chat and Zoom, developed a digital document delivery service to supply students and faculty with materials, and expanded the online collections, including new video streaming services and three new e-book platforms. Their reach to students had an unexpected increase, and reference interactions—specifically research help—practically doubled.

As for the reopening, the library is thrilled to welcome students back and will continue online reference in addition to returning to in-person referencing. They urge students, as well as the community, to utilize the resources offered. With the recent reopening of the IAIA Campus, the library is open to the public as well. Only students can check out materials and access online resources off-campus, but visitors are welcome to access the library databases and materials in person.

IAIA Library hours are Monday–Thursday 8 am–8 pm, Friday 8 am–5 pm, and Sunday 12–8 pm. To learn more about the IAIA Library, visit www.iaia.edu/academics/library/.
