PEOPLE YOU MUST LOOK AT ME

/ Badger & Coyote Were Neighbors

/The Origin of Eternal Death

"What is an Indian narrative? Can the "realness" of data be explored as a fictional space? If I map my indigenous female body, is it now my own?"

"The piece takes my body through an environmental simulation of the Oglala Lakota comsologyscape, as I shoulder the burden of 4 female Lakota characters who have shaped space/time. The piece includes 12 sculptures, animation, sound, video, carbon fiber, clothing, and movement, developed from an obsessive hyper-structure derived from “bad” source books that attempt to qualify Oglala religion into a simplified chart.

This piece explores the relationship between my body and the entanglement between lies, fiction, oral history, mythology, ethnography, and Lakota religion." 

Performed at The Banff Centre on February 6th, 2016.
