That’s damn right that natives are getting restless. With the recent destruction of the Sacred Oaks by the city sanctioned Highway 55, it’s no surprise that the rebellious 70’s Native activist group, called the American Indian Movement (AIM), was based in Minneapolis. Sam Durant has been aware of AIM since he was a teenager. For this project, Durant and Native teenagers from Heart of the Earth and Four Directions charter schools created a soundscape of historical text, personal poetry and rhymes for metaphorically “exposing the roots” of the Twin Cities Native community. The irony: the founder of the Walker Art Center, T.B. Walker, made his money from lumber and the site for Sam Durant’s sculpture was a migratory camp for Native Americans. Oh the irony.
