SNAG Anthology: A Decade of Indigenous Media, 2003–2013

A decade of indigenous, youth-produced media

This full-color compendium of Seventh Native American Generation (SNAG) Magazine amasses a decade of indigenous media created by Native youth from throughout the Americas, and was produced with help from San Francisco youth during weekly publishing workshops. In essays, art, photos, and poetry, over 350 contributors tackle a range of topics as difficult as poverty and the scars of colonialism and racism to subjects as transcendently beautiful as the empowering experience of returning to sacred land. Each page bursts with bold color and energy, presenting a multiplicity of experiences of growing up Native. The product of SNAG, an organization dedicated to taking action against continued injustices Native people face through public education and artistic expression, this body of work ignites the spirit and unleashes the healing power of creativity.
