Goudi'ni Native American Arts Gallery

The Goudi'ni Native American Arts Gallery was founded in 2011 with the mission to honor living culture through the presentation of contemporary and traditional Native American art. This respectful learning space builds campus, Tribal and community connections by promoting diverse artistic perspectives. Inspired by the Wiyot word Goudi’ni, translated as “one is way up and one looks back,” we acknowledge the long history of this place by sharing the stories of past, present and future generations.

The Gouid'ni Gallery showcases 2 exhibitions a year, with other gallery programming throughout the year. We are closed to the public when exhibitions are not open.

Opening Fall 2022: Recalling From The Source - a group exhibition of North West California Indigenous Artists. 

Call for Art! Enter Artwork here!



The Goudi’ni Native American Arts Gallery invites artists to participate in the group exhibition Recalling From The Source. All Indigenous artists residing in the Northern California region are welcome to enter. Works must be original and can be 2D, 3D, video, regalia, jewelry, etc.; artists are welcome to enter regardless of their experience or education in the art field. Entry is free and each artist may show up to 2 artworks. 


Recalling From The Source highlights the work of Northern California Indigenous art community. The center of our worlds are seen in our art and making - expressed through the hands that gather and weave baskets, and the sounds of abalone and shell on our regalia, to visions of other realities in paint. Highlighting the diversity of expression in our communities, this is a snapshot of what the NorthWest Coast of California creates.
