First American Art Magazine, LLC (FAAM) is a new magazine dedicated solely to the arts of Indigenous peoples of the Americas. Order a print copy today! Issue No. 0 and 1 are out now, and Issue No. 2 will be out in mid-January 2013.
"FAAM fills a gaping void by promoting critical writing on aboriginal art of the Americas directed at the public and driven by artists. It synthesizes the academic and the public perspectives and promotes artists with little to no support infrastructure outside of their own communities. Without a doubt it is on track to be one of the strongest, highest quality publications of its kind." —David Winfield Norman, art writer, Norway
First American Art Magazine, LLC (FAAM) promotes and contextualizes visual, media, literary, and performing arts of Indigenous Americas from a hemispheric Indigenous perspective. Our goal is to foster critical dialogue about Native art. We provide a forum to bridge the academy and the general public. FAAM examines current and historical issues through the lens of Native art.
First American Art Magazine, LLC envisions a world with Indigenous cultural sovereignty. We achieve this by articulating and popularizing Indigenous critical theory in ways accessible to Native communities as well as the non-Native art world.
Tradition isn’t a stagnant pond; it’s a flowing stream.
–Diego Romero (Cochiti Pueblo)
