Re-Riding History is a curatorial project of Emily Arthur, Marwin Begaye, and John Hitchcock who asked contemporary artists to respond to the journey of the Salt Fork prisoners in 1879. Hitchcock will be on site to lead a gallery talk and program along with the art exhibition. “Kill the Indian, save the Man” is a phrase coined by Lieutenant Richard Henry Pratt in 1879, referencing the assimilation methods he developed and institutionalized at the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania. Pratt supervised the imprisonment and forced removal of 72 Indians captured in Salt Fork, Oklahoma.

The deaths of unarmed civilians... accusations of excessive and biased use of force by police, and grand jury decisions that sparked nationwide protests and demonstrations - the tragic events of 2014 have left many Americans in stunned disbelief as we struggle to cope with a profound sense of sadness, loss and disillusionment. At the same time, the swell of people and voices from so many walks of life publicly decrying the injustice of these killings has brought hope that awareness of the value and dignity of ALL lives has finally emerged in American consciousness.
