SHI Visiting Scholar to Research Collaboration Between Native Artists, Organizations

SHI welcomes our 2012 Visiting Scholar, Christiane Rehn of Germany.  Christiane is a Ph.D. student in American Studies at the University of Passau  and is studying how Native artists and organizations such as SHI work together. Christiane is happy to return to Alaska after first visiting in 2007, when she researched her diploma thesis on Alaska Native art. Her current research will be beneficial to our community in assessing how we can best support artists, and we are pleased to host her.  Christiane will be conducting interviews and surveys with SHI and Native artists in the region.  If you’re a practicing Native artist who would like to share your experiences, please let us know!  Your voice is important in this study. Artists may also contact her directly at
