UNCW Honoring Southeast NC Indigenous Peoples
Honoring Southeast NC Indigenous Peoples is a collaboration between UNCW Community Engagement and Impact, the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion, and members of several North Carolina tribal communities. This project is about bringing awareness to contemporary Native issues while also celebrating our perseverance and traditions. The compositions of the paintings consist of personal photos as well as photos collected from members of Native communities, including the Lumbee and Waccamaw Siouan. With this work I wanted to merge historical and contemporary issues. There are three paintings with each having a separate theme. Artwork can be viewed on the second floor of the Fisher Student Union on the campus of UNCW.
