For Native Truths: Our Voices, Our Stories
The Field Museum, Chicago. Opened May 20, 2022.
Each map 110.5" x 108"
These are two large maps about Removals as Hoocąk and Myaamiaki have experienced them. They form a space for talking about what is euphemistically known as Removal.
We must stand for each other's stories. We must learn to recognize the manifestations and seeds of Removals all around us.
Everything happens somewhere.
It's been a huge privilege to be part of this project.
