Throughout the STTLMNT winter program, participating artist Haley Greenfeather English will construct a contemporary wigwam structure and present video documentation of the creation process in through VLOG entries throughout the winter months.
Presented on this day will be the first of the wiGw@m VLOG updates. Find out more here.
By weaving together ancestral architecture and her own aesthetic, the structure will be 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.
You'll be the first to hear the latest Mayflower news, events, and more.
