Executive Director of the Northeast Indigenous Arts Alliance (NIAA), she works to support Native American artists by sharing resources and opportunities, addressing their needs and increasing visibility of Native Arts in the Northeast.  Dawn is the daughter of artist/teacher Diosa Summers (Choctaw), a featured artist in one of our museum exhibits.  A wife, mother and grandmother, Dawn has been teaching and demonstrating for over 25 years years in many forms of art.  

“I try to capture the vibrant colors of our natural world; they are my inspiration along with my appreciation of the symbolism within our indigenous culture…I work in both contemporary and traditional mediums; I use both traditional and unconventional tools.  I like to experiment with these mediums and create amazing colors. I feel like the possibilities are endless.”
