IDENTIFY, the National Portrait Gallery’s performance art series, focuses attention on activism, visibility and experimentation through portrayal. James Luna portrays Ishi, the last member of the Yahi, a Native American tribe indigenous to Northern California. In their performance art, Luna and Sheila Tishla Skinner not only pay tribute to the man known during his lifetime as “the last wild Indian” but also give voice to indigenous women.
