May 2 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Opening reception with guest speaker Drew Hayden Taylor. Taylor is a well known playwright and humorist whose literary works speak to his experience as a mixed race individual and the role of humor in negotiating difficult issues in Native communities such as membership, colonization, and adoptions. Drew is from Curve Lake Reserve in Ontario. His talk is part of Identity/Identify, a multi-faceted response by 15 Iroquois artists to the issues surrounding who is considered Iroquois and the increasingly political and polarizing repercussions of these designations.
