VIRTUAL PANEL DISCUSSION | Centering Indigenous Knowledges in a NEBULOUS Moment
Courtney M. Leonard (Shinnecock Nation), Artist and Assistant Professor of Art and Art History, St. Olaf College
Nicholas J. Reo (Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians), Associate Professor of Environmental Studies and Native American Studies, Dartmouth
Suzanne Greenlaw (Maliseet Nation), Ph.D. candidate, School of Forest Resources, University of Maine
Moderated by Jami Powell (Osage Nation), Associate Curator of Native American Art, Hood Museum of Art, Dartmouth

The exhibition Form and Relation: Contemporary Native Ceramics, currently installed at the Hood Museum of Art, raises important questions with which communities across the globe are grappling: How can we shift our understanding of the land from one of ownership and extraction to one of relationality? How do we move toward a recognition of our shared humanity? How do we create a world in which future generations can thrive? Using these framing questions and artist Courtney M. Leonard’s site-specific installation BREACH: Logbook 20 | NEBULOUS as starting points, the panelists will consider the complexities of our current moment and the myriad entanglements and impositions that impact our lives and futures. Grounded in Indigenous ways of knowing, each of the panelists provides a unique perspective on issues of the environment, relationality, resource management, intergenerational knowledge, and art-making. This is presented as part of Part of the Dickey Center’s ‘Round the Girdled Earth program.
