Angela is an enrolled member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate and received her BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design. She is the director of All My Relations Arts, a contemporary American Indian art gallery and arts program that is a project of the Native American Community Development Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Angela’s public art graces the shores of Bde Maka Ska in Minnesota and honors the Dakota people of Mni Sota. Her sculpture, Okciyapi, was acquired by the Walker Art Center and is permanently installed in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. Angela’s solo exhibition, (Re)Connected, will be on view at the museum from March 1 to July 20, 2024. Learn more about the exhibition.

Angela’s residency is titled “Okizipi (To Heal).” During her residency, Angela will invite the community to share in courageous conversations that focus on healing. Healing is a process that takes courage and commitment to undo the deep traumas Angela explores in the work featured in her exhibition (Re)Connected. While working onsite at the museum, Angela will also create an artwork that will become part of the museum’s permanent collection.
