Good Medicine  brings together Indigenous healers and medicine people to collectively create, share knowledge, and practice in the community. Unfolding over a year with the work of different Alaska Native healers, this multi-disciplinary exhibition offers diverse opportunities for gathering and exchange.

Colonialism has attacked and suppressed medicine people and Indigenous knowledge systems for centuries. This exhibition addresses harmful legacies and shows how revitalizing healing practices and traditions provides ways of aligning with oneself, with community, and with our planet.

Curated by Tlingit traditional healer Meda DeWitt, Good Medicine emphasizes spiritual renewal, cultural renascence, and the importance of co-creating futures where nature can thrive.
