ÒCreating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian ArtÓ Gallery Exhibit at Epcot

Miss Florida Seminole, Cheyenne Kippenberger, and Jr. Miss Florida Seminole, Allegra Billie, of the Seminole Tribe, see how intricate American Indian beadwork techniques are passed down through generations while viewing dolls on display in ÒCreating Tradition: Innovation and Change in American Indian ArtÓ inside The American Adventure pavilion at Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort. The dolls were created by artists Juanita Growing Thunder and her grandmother, Joyce Growing Thunder, with the Assiniboine/Sioux tribes. Both dolls are on loan from the SmithsonianÕs National Museum of the American Indian. The exhibition showcases the work of contemporary Native artists alongside artifacts from centuries past, demonstrating how ancestral craftsmanship influences modern generations.
