nibiiwakamigkwe is a Métis, Onyota’a:ka (Oneida), Anishinaabe (Ojibwe), Cuban, and waabishkiiwed Two-Spirit artist working in traditional Indigenous craftwork and contemporary Woodlands style. Their work fosters awareness of land protection, Indigenous cultural landscapes, and the complexity of identity. This includes the relatedness of Indigenous art and artists to language preservation, land rights, environmental justice, and the impact of cultural appropriation.
This CDMC Conversation is led by Dakota Mace, SoHE MFA alumna and CDMC Photographer, and focuses on art practices as decolonizing tools, expressions of art activism, and nibiiwakamigkwe’s current work revitalizing traditional Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee tattooing practices.
