Henry Frank has indigenous bloodlines from the Yurok and Pomo Tribes. He is a returning resident, former Arts In Corrections participant/clerk, and currently employed by the William James Association as Communications Administrator and a Teaching Artist. He uses his art to amplify the voices of people of color, people who are currently experiencing incarceration, and returning residents to expose the mistreatment, dehumanization, and desolation. These people have voices, and his contribution is to make sure they are heard beyond the reservations and prison walls. His art stems from his childhood, spiritual practice, his memories/treatment from his incarceration and living as a Native American in a colonized based society. Art has freed and expanded his scope of humanity and his own existence and purpose.
