Louie Gong is a Native artist, activist and educator widely known for merging traditional Coast Salish art with influences from his urban environment to make strong statements about identity. He has spent most of his career in higher education, working on behalf of low income, first generation students, first at the University of Washington’s Educational Opportunity Center (TRiO) and then at Muckleshoot Tribal College. When speaking, Louie often shows images of his art work to engage his audience, then weaves together humorous personal stories, empirical information and his own analysis to inspire them. He often speaks on topics such as identity, cultural appropriation, and contemporary Native social issues.
