Gallery hosts Native
American art show

Art forms that reveal connections with nature and the spirit world make up an exhibit "American Indian Art Invitational 2000: Tsé Má Quen Tsumé" at Queen Emma Gallery.

The show's title means inner strength in the Zuni language. The exhibit marks the first effort of the fledgling American Indian Arts Society of Hawaii, a group that believes traditional arts and crafts can help people maintain health and become a healing force in their lives, said society leader Deborah Badua.

The society hopes to involved the community in all forms of Native Americans arts, said Badua, who is Zuni.

Among the artwork from invited artists are fetish carvings from the Quandelacy family of the Zuni pueblo, pottery from the Lewis sisters of the Acoma and from the late Ray Tafoya of the Santa Clara and beadwork by Hawaii resident Tracie Elesarke of the Hopi.

The exhibit runs through June 11. Hours for the gallery, which is in the main lobby of The Queen's Medical Center, are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday and Sunday.

Admission is free. Information: 537-7167
