Stacy Elaine Pratt will write about art and artists from southeastern Indigenous tribal nations, raising awareness of art practices in both Indigenous art communities and in mainstream art worlds. Oklahoma is currently home to 39 tribal nations, the result of many instances of displacement from other areas of what is now known as the United States. Pratt aims to Indigenize contemporary art criticism, following the theoretical writings of heather ahtone (Choctaw/Chickasaw), Nancy Marie Mithlo (Chiricahua Apache), and Craig S. Womack (Mvskoke), including lived experience, oral tradition, and other aspects of Native scholarship and philosophy in her practice as a writer.
