This showcase features work by artists and thinkers who continue to remind me of the strength of our spirits during uncertain times — for Native folks disease and epidemics are nothing new. There is strength in diversity and First Peoples’ knowledge is as wide as the sky.

First Peoples Week is The Greene Space’s first-ever multi-day celebration centering Indigenous communities in and out of NYC. Our mission is to provide meaningful space for Indigenous artists, organizers and thinkers to lead the conversation, and offer insights into their histories, cultures, concerns and visions for the future.

The Greene Space would like to acknowledge that we are on Lenapehoking, the traditional and unceded land of the Lenape People, past and present. We honor with gratitude the land itself and the Lenape, who continue to honor and bring to light their heritage and contributions.
