About Michaela Pavlat
Michaela graduated from Northern Michigan University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in drawing and painting and studied a wide range of art history.
As a creative being, she uses her artwork to educate audiences about Native American culture and the misappropriation of Indigenous cultures. Her goal is to develop a museum in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan to use artwork and local Native peoples’ voices to educate others.
