Official Poster for the 2021 North Dakota Human Rights Film Festival
Mani works with paints, stone, paper, and digital media to explore his culture. His process involves community, oral histories, institutional research, and critical theory to highlight the concerns and values of his people. He integrates art, history, and tradition to share new ideas of contemporary life.

Mani shares the continuum of Indian art that has continued to evolve for thousands of years. He shares his knowledge of Native American history, art and culture and how Indigenous people have adapted to changes in social and cultural landscapes. He has worked on large scale sculptures, murals, and community-based arts in the Midwest as well as working with Dakota language education for the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate. Mani currently works at Tiospa Zina Tribal School and is earning his Business Administration degree and his Dakota Teaching Certificate form Sisseton Wahpeton College. He is working on an extensive portrait series and a large-scale stone sculpture in Sisseton, SD.
