In collaboration with the School of Visual Arts, College of Fine Arts, and Indigenous Voices in the Americas we are excited to welcome Dakota Mace (Diné) to Boston University.
Educator Event workshop: Cultural Appropriation and the Intersections of Indigenous Design & Art
This body of work will be an extension of Dakota’s current research on the Long Walk and will focus on the Navajo Treaty from 1868. A selection of 100 cochineal cyanotypes, collected from along the Long Walk, will be set in a tabletop case, arranged in a tight grid. The prints are living artifacts and connect to interviews Dakota recorded of Diné elders. A series of 25 lithographs will hang along one of the walls, an aspect of Dakota’s research on the 1968 Treaty. Two sash belts will be displayed on cases, alongside a second audio piece, a set of interviews of Diné women elders, narrated by Dakota.
