Alyssa Macy: Art, Economics, and Indigenous Communities

OPB | Nov. 16, 2013 9:51 a.m. | Portland

Keep your eye on this one. After several years out of state, Alyssa Macy came back to Oregon this fall to work for The Native Arts & Cultures Foundation.

Macy grew up on the Warm Springs reservation. Until September, she was working in Milwaukie, Wisconsin.

This week, she was appointed to the Oregon Arts Commission. We liked her perspectives on art and what kind of resources get the biggest bang in indigenous communities.
