A strong argument could be made that "Hearts of Our People," the first major museum exhibition exploring the achievements of female Native American artists, was the most important, positively reviewed exhibit presented in the U.S. last year. Opening in Minneapolis, closing soon in Nashville and headed to the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. next, the show shattered a glass ceiling these artists had been bumping up against for decades.

Following in the wake of this historic presentation come two more opportunities to admire the work of Native American women, with hopefully countless more just over the horizon.
