As part of the Indigenous Voices in the Americas Series, the BU Arts Initiative is pleased to host a conversation and demonstration with Elizabeth James-Perry (Wampanoag Tribe of Gay-Head Aquinnah). Elizabeth makes distinctively robust and textured wampum shell jewelry, porcupine quillwork, and northeastern twined textiles. She creates substantial heirloom quality adornment items reflecting her Algonquian diplomatic heritage. In cultivating many of the plants used in natural dyes at her home in the Southcoast area of Massachusetts, her gardens serve to seed the suburbs with important Native species. The rest are wild harvested in a sustainable way.
