Arts Fort Worth will present "Native Nowe," where visitors can step into the spaces of modern native lives and have a window into the modern, diverse, and ever-changing lives of native people, especially those whose families left reservations for urban centers like Dallas-Fort Worth due to the federal "Indian Relocation Program" of the 1950s and 60s. The exhibit is inspired and influenced by all the native neighbors in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Visitors will be able to check out a Paiute man’s closet full of native-designed clothing and items he embellished himself alongside an auntie’s sewing corner where she makes traditional Choctaw dresses for her nieces; consider the work of an advocate for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women/People as well as a Water Protector who protested at Standing Rock; and check out how kids in a Native language immersion school learn and engage with their heritage every day.

Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on view through October 28.
