Native artist, Charlene Teeters shines a light on the stereotypical images of American Indians used in mainstream America. Using the media of popular culture as her medium, she works with installation art. She bombards her audience with commercialized images and names used to portray American Indians, such as Redskins, Braves and juxtaposes them against photographs of friends and family who she considers real American Indians. Teeters hopes to bring a voice to the silence and visibility to invisible people. She uses art as a forum to raise the level of debate about stereotyping and racism in modern America.
