Sense of Place through an Indigenous Lens
Co Carew // October 14
10:00 AM–12:00 PM, $18/20
In honor of Indigenous Peoples' Day, join Co Carew PhD, as she discusses her Indigenous arts-based research focused on understanding a 'sense of place'. Carew, a descendant of Mescalero Apache, will share her methods and findings from research that she conducted with faculty, alumni and students from the Salish Kootenai College (representing five federally recognized Native American tribes). Participants will be guided through an art-making experience to highlight and solicit their understanding of 'place'. Expect to use paint and collage during this mixed-media art-making experience. No prior art experience needed. Open to all abilities.
