Thank you for being with us during 2020! It is an understatement to say that the past year was a challenge, but Crow’s Shadow had many successes this year as well.

The above image collage reflects some of our 2020 highlights:

Row 1: detail of a forthcoming Jovencio De La Paz edition, Wendy Red Star during her virtual artist talk, Maggie Middleton preparing a test litho stone

Row 2: Ralph Pugay’s interview video, Yoonhee Choi editions getting printed, Jovencio De La Paz signing his monoprints

Row 3: Yoshihiro Kitai signing his editions, remembering Rick Bartow, Maggie Middleton and Judith Baumann printing for Ralph Pugay

Row 4: new press arriving from Tackach, detail of a proof for Wendy Red Star, Natalie Ball editions being printed

Crow's Shadow welcomed three incredible Artists-in-Residence: Wendy Red Star, Ralph Pugay, and Jovencio De La Paz; our new Apprentice Printer, Maggie Middleton joined CSIA at the end of June; Judith Baumann completed editions for Yoshihiro Kitai, Yoonee Choi, Raven Chacon, Yatika Fields, and Natalie Ball. And we were able to make the significant acquisition of a bigger and better Takach litho press.

There is, of course, a lot of “invisible” operational work that goes on to keep our lights on and staff paid, which was no small feat in a year like 2020. Our Executive Director, Karl Davis, managed to keep CSIA on an even keel, and not having to worry about our jobs was something of a luxury that so many other small nonprofits around us struggled with during Covid restrictions. We have been bolstered by our board, friends, clients, volunteers, and donors--that means you. Thank you for reading these emails, and supporting our programming in whatever way you can. We appreciate all of you!

Phillip Cash Cash Joins CSIA Board

We are thrilled to announce that Phillip Cash Cash (Cayuse, Nez Perce) has joined the Crow's Shadow Board of Directors. Dr. Cash Cash was integral to the founding of the Institute in 1992, lending his voice and hard work in those early days to help create a strong base for the future of the organization. He is a scholar, artist, and performer; most recently he completed a double doctorate program in Linguistics and Anthropology from the University of Arizona. 
Dr. Cash Cash is currently a consultant to numerous organizations and municipalities regarding issues such as Land Acknowledgement Protocol, repatriation, exhibit planning, cultural advocacy, ecology, and knowledge transfer. Please join us in welcoming him back to the organization in a leadership role; we look forward to working with him again at Crow's Shadow.
