Indian Spirit (Britt Thomas Exhibit)

The Galveston Arts Center welcomes an exhibit by Britt Thomas named Indian Spirit that documents the Port Neches-Groves Indians high school football traditions and the community who keeps those traditions alive.  Her photographs take an observational approach to PN-G's unique fusion of Texas football customs and Native American cultural appropriation that has existed in this community since 1925.  The title, Indian Spirit, emerges from the name of PN-G's mascot and reflects the community's intense committmet to their motto of "Honor, Pride, Tradition."  Indian Spirit exhibit from  January 18 - April 12, 2020, Galveston Arts Center, 2127 Strand, Galveston, Texas.  (Taken from the Galveston Arts Center website at www.galvestonartscenter.org/britt-thomas)
