Oak Cliff Cultural Center and American Indian Heritage Day in Texas present Concrete Jungle: DNA (Diary of Native Americans) and Genetics. An exhibit that focuses on breaking the perceptions and deceptions that are commonly associated with Native Americans. Concrete Jungle: DNA and Genetics will be on display from July 29 — September 1, 2017. A reception will be held on Saturday, July 29, 2017, from 5:30pm — 8:00pm. Exhibit and gallery reception are FREE and open to the public.

About the Exhibit

The most researched but least understood are the American Indians. American Indians, also known as “urban indians” live in the North Texas region. “Urban Indians” often deal with stereotypes and racism by well-meaning citizens who are not knowledgeable of American Indians. The DNAs of the American Indians are earth and sky, past and future, evolution and continuation, genocide and survivalists. The modern DIARY OF NATIVE AMERICANS is breaking the mold of today’s perception and deception of American Indians by sharing the duality that Urban Indians must exist in. Our American Indian community is trying to hold on to its cultural preservation, while addressing assimilation to the mainstream society.
