This new body of work that comes directly from my Smithsonian SARF Fellowship.....I found my ancestors in the photographic archives while doing research in my fellowship. I immediately wanted to honor my ancestors......While in this SARF Fellowship, I also studied beadwork patterns in which their designs resemble the patterning from the carpets in the boarding school and delegation photos. My vision was to bring the ancestor photos, the beadwork colors, and the carpet designs together in a rush of digital glory. I was able to do this with the help of my digital assistant Ben Pharris.....Ben worked with me all summer of 2016 to bring my vision into reality and I am thrilled with the results.
