Valaria Tatera is an installation artist, activist, and lecturer whose works investigates the intersection of ethnicity, gender, commerce, and the environment. An enrolled member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Tatera explores self-identity and contemporary Indigenous issues such as the impact of colonization on Indigenous erasure, visibility, and resilience. Her intention is for the work to hold visual and personal space for statistics that often erase the individual. Tatera earned and MFA from UW-Madision, and an MA and BFA from UW-Milwaukee. She was a finalist for the Mary Nohl Fellowship and the United States Artist Fellowship, and co-curated the 2020 exhibition Stolen Sisters about missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirits.
