Living in a Perfect World By Nytom

How can we find ourselves living in a perfect world? Find peace through the art of Designs by Nytom. 

The National Congress of American Indians

The National Congress of American Indians is the oldest, largest, and most representative American Indian and Alaskan Native organization serving the broad interests of tribal governments and communities in America. Its mission includes:

  • Protecting and enhancing treaty and sovereign rights;
  • Securing our traditional laws, cultures, and ways of life for our descendants;
  • Promoting a common understanding of the rightful place of tribes in the family of American governments;
  • and Improving the quality of life for Native communities and peoplesLiving in a Perfect World by Nytom

With this mission in mind, the Congress convenes to discuss the most pressing issues facing Indian Country. This year’s NCAI Conference was scheduled to be in Portland, Oregon. Unfortunately, this year the event shifted to be fully virtual due to COVID-19.

The Pacific Northwest and the tribal nations that call it home have a strong emphasis on the relationship between the health of the people and the land. We always have lived in harmony with each other and the natural environment.

Featured Artist

I was honored when I was asked to be the featured artist of this year’s NCAI Conference. And while I was disappointed that we would be unable to visit with our brothers and sisters in person, I was optimistic and excited to contribute to the virtual event with my art.

As an Artist who focuses on native art, I often wonder what it would take to live in a perfect world: a place where people take only what they need, leave the rest for others, and always get along. The Northwest strives to be a perfect place in my eyes. For that reason, the native art that I selected to use was for this event was “Living in a Perfect World.” You can learn more about this limited edition print by visiting my website.

    Nytom, it is wonderful to read this message. I have your lithograph, ‘A Season’s Catch’ by the table where I eat each day. Each morning I say the poem, ‘Invitation’ while looking at it. The final lines are ‘and no one / was a stranger / to butter / melting on a crust / of my grandma’s / homemade bread.’ The poem is about hospitality, and it is that grandma who lived with us when I was a child and who had First Nation ancestry.

    I forward your emails to relatives who I have living in the Seattle area. I have been thrilled with the glass panels and your sharing with the Maori artist. I am live always in hope of the message which you have given here. As you know, Kalaloch was a gigantic joy of my childhood. The gift of the Peninsula is the most joyous presence. So many beautiful things have been given to us by our ancestors – your grandad and my grandma among them. XXXXXXX Bobba
