    Haudenosaunee Women

    I chose this poem because it resonated most for me as a relevant cultural statement. I find I seek to make art that is not only beautiful in color and composition, but that also compels consideration.

    For me, the disparity between modern Syracuse and the ancient wisdom of this land and its native peoples is the most relevant conversation we could have.

    It is one that applies to the world at large. The matrilineal wisdom of indigenous peoples and their connection to earth is what will remedy our dismal future. We must remember. This poem, this poster, remembers the women that came before us.

    The women that paid every price to grant themselves and future generations access to sovereignty.
