Valaria Tatera is a Wisconsin based visual artist, activist, lecturer, curator and an enrolled member of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. Valaria graduated with a MFA in 3-D from the University of Wisconsin- Madison. Her work explores the impact of colonization on Indigenous erasure, visibility and resilience. The
intention is “for the work to indigenize and hold space for statistics that often erase the individual”.

Recently, her work has been exhibited at the Haggerty Museum, Mitchell Museum, Museum of Wisconsin Art, Madeline Island Museum, Trout Museum, Wyoming Museum, All My Relations Gallery, Truax Gallery Madison College and Sweet Briar College.
