COMMUNITY WORK & TEACHING
MAINE WABANAKI REACH
In 2018, I was part of a collaborative effort to create two silkscreened maps for MAINE Wabanaki Reach's educational workshop, "Exploring Maine Wabanaki History". Maine Wabanaki Reach is a cross-cultural organization dedicated to truth-telling and decolonization.
In March, we collected designs at Beatrice Rafferty School in Sipayik, Maine, where students were asked to express something they loved about their community or heritage. I then directly translated these images into silkscreens and printed them on a large, canvas map of the state with the help of Karin Spitfire and Barbara Kates.
In October of 2018, I served as a Visiting Artist for the introductory printmaking classes at Bowdoin College, during which we produced a second map featuring the same designs.
