SANTA FE N.M. – Cherokee Nation citizen American Meredith is editing and publishing a new publication that explores all aspects of indigenous American art, from the visual to the literary.

Called “First American Art Magazine,” Meredith said it’s unlike any other magazine on the newsstands because it focuses on indigenous art of the Americas from an indigenous perspective, presenting indigenous critical theory in a way that’s accessible to the general public both – Native and non-Native.

“We want to get to the content and context of the art,” she said. “We provide reviews of Native American art shows by Indigenous art writers and profile established and emerging artists from a wide range of media, geographic region and tribal affiliation.”

The magazine’s goal is to provide a common platform for Native and non-Native academics, art professionals, artists, collectors and other interested readers to seriously investigate and celebrate Indigenous American art from ancestral to 21st century artwork.

The pilot issue features 21st-century Greenlandic art and artists, Native American fashion and cultural misappropriation, a Native artist’s response to exhibiting in Paris plus several artist profiles. News in brief, upcoming events, book reviews, memorial profiles, a graphic design column, literature and original illustrations are also sprinkled in this newly envisioned mix.

While First American Art Magazine’s pilot issue is available online for free, print versions are available. Issue No. 1 will come out in early August. Subscriptions and single copies are available online.
