A multimedia performance insulation piece using the poetry Sequoia wrote while on their study abroad in Aotearoa/ New Zealand as well as videos of water from their home as well as Aotearoa to highlight Sequoia's connection with water.
Sequoia was asked to write a poem connecting to their ancestors. Sequoia wrote two poems about our ancestors the soil, the sky, the moon, the lakes, and the rivers. The canoe paddle is an extenuation of a persons arm and the direct connection to the water, which is why these poems were painting on two canoe paddles. The paddle were hand crafted by Jacob Bernier and the artwork is by Angela Richards. PC: Bruce Silcox
