its vibrant cover, fascinating artists, and timely articles, reading the latest
issue of BAR issue 06, “Timestamp” is a great way to get through the quarantine
winter doldrums (especially when joined by non-human friends).
I’m excited to present my critical piece, “Dislodging the Cultural Infrastructure of Indigenous Peoples' Dispossession,” which is an article and timeline featuring my take on some important happenings over the past year in from my lens as a Dakota artist and cultural worker, and an artist in residence for the City of Boston.
I’m honored to have worked with many amazing artists this year that are mentioned in the timeline, including Elizabeth James-Perry (Aquinnah Wampanoag), Robert Peters (Masphee Wampanoag) and Lily Manycolors (mixed Choctaw); as well as the organizations, Urbano Project, Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture, New England Foundation for the Arts Public Art Team, and Metropolitan Area Planning Council; and have been influenced by the work of the Boston Art Commission, United American Indians of New England and Radical Imagination for Racial Justice.
