Everything I Say Is True (2017) was commissioned by Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff Centre.

Everything I Say Is True is a multi-media performance work by Southern California-based, Oglala Lakota artist Kite, aka Suzanne Kite. In the performance Kite constructs a complex narrative through the use of her own family’s ephemera and historical documents as well as through a new body of work in various mediums, including video, sound and sculpture. Everything I Say Is True considers concepts of truth in relation to Oglala Lakota knowledge systems.

This custom silk gown, embroidered with a concentric timeline of events in Indigenous Peoples histories and events from the artist's personal history, was commissioned by long term collaborator Suzanne Kite for the performance and installation.
