Throughout the STTLMNT Winter Program as part of Mayflower 400, artist Haley Greenfeather English is constructing a contemporary wigwam structure and will present video documentation of the creation process through VLOG updates.
By weaving together ancestral architecture and her own aesthetic, the structure is being built at her home in the forest of Tijeras, New Mexico.
The wiGw@m will hold space for English's late maternal and paternal grandparents. It will symbolise reclamation of culture and reconciliation between settler and Native American families by interpreting narratives of kinship existing within her own Indigenous and non-Indigenous family history.
