“The public participated in spirited discussion about identity, representation, and perception of Native peoples and “others” as a result of the three exhibits, panel discussion, and residency. The traveling version of Photo ID: Portraits by Native Youth will prompt even more discussion and creative expressions around the topic.” -Final Report from the Arizona State Museum
