Originally from the plains of South Dakota, Angela is an enrolled member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Tribe.
Growing up on a Native American Indian reservation influenced Angela’s identity as an artist and as a person. After living off the reservation for over ten years, Angela’s return in 2013 until 2015 allowed her to reconnect with her culture and language. These connections were the catalyst for her current work that incorporates the Dakota Language as a means of bringing awareness to the plight of Indigenous languages and the importance of language revitalization.
Angela received her BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design where she studied drawing and printmaking. She currently lives in East Lansing, Michigan.
