Event Details

The Zia sun is seen everywhere, from commercial planes flown across the United States to tattoos proudly displayed as a badge of honor. It has become an international icon, associated with the pride and prestige of the state of New Mexico. The Zia sun is seen everywhere, from commercial planes flown across the United States to tattoos proudly displayed. Yet, do we know the true origin of the Zia symbol and its original meaning? This exhibit will take you through the journey of the symbol’s origin in Zia Pueblo to its commodification that continues to grow in popularity, analyzing the question of ownership.

“Because the Zia sun has become a symbol of community and identity, we want to invite everyone to be involved,” says IPCC’s Curator of Exhibitions, Rachel Moore (Hopi). “We want the community to share their images and objects and be part of the exhibit, then come see it and learn more about this symbol that holds such great importance to our Pueblo people.”
