Oyate Hotanin (Voice of the People) is working to lead a movement for the next 500 years that supports a new era of art, healing and change.
Oyate Hotanin exists to creatively channel the potential of conversation, stories, art and mobilizing to bring communities together to laugh, think, inspire healing and to address critical issues that spur social change.
We are artists, dealing with artistic means, to heal ourselves and simultaneously educate and inform others… responding to current and historic trauma. Our lens is the global impact of racism and genocide in our community.
We are working to host regular artistic events and imbed community conversations in these events to develop a movement in Indian country and beyond that supports a new era of art, healing and change.
Oyate Hotanin is based in Mni Sota Makoce, the original homeland of the Dakota people.
