"Columbuscide - Denver, 2007 • 515 years of invasion, indigenous
resistance and renewal."
Art Festival, Opening Friday, October 5th,
Laughing Bean Café, 1025 N. Santa Fe Drive, Denver.
The show will expose the deception, death and destruction
embodied in the celebration of Columbus Day, which was born 100 years
ago this year in Colorado. The show will also reflect the spirit of resistance of indigenous
peoples to over 500 years of oppression and genocide in our homeland.
It will express the spirit of resilience and dedication to freedom for
future generations of indigenous peoples here in on Turtle Island.
Featuring work by American Indian artists, Russell Means, Lawrence Paul and other native and non-native artists who have provided their
interpretation of the effects of imperialism, genocide, and oppression which began with Columbus' arrival and that continue today.
