More about Asa:

Asa Wright, Klamath/Modoc, Artist|Activist

Asa is from Chiloquin, OR but has called Portland home for the last 15 years with his amazing daughter and pup. He earned his MFA in Collaborative Design at PNCA last May. He believes in culture as prevention and has focused his work on redesigning Tribal communities through cultural preservation. 

Asa traveled to Standing Rock in October and again in November and stayed just short of 2 months. He stood on the front lines for water and tribal sovereignty. He was also able to work with the Indigenous Peoples Power Project in creating art for action, which became the visual voice for the Mni Wiconi movement.
