Anisette Nibs

Anisette has a powerful flavor when drunk straight, and can even produce irritation to the throat if not taken slowly due to its high alcoholic content. In mixed drinks, however, it produces a sweet agreeable flavor.

“As Ojibwe women, we’re responsible for the water. It’s our responsibility to care for the water, to pray for the water, to sing for the water, to gather the water and then lift those petitions up to the spirits and especially to the water spirits.”

— Sharon Day

Political art may not have much practical social utility but it can be a powerful symbolic container for public anger. Or hope.

It’s Been Over 100 Years Since An Artist Has Done This In America. About Time Someone Did It Again.

More than a century has passed since a photographic journey explored Native Americans with such a broad scope and in this amount of detail. In 1906, photographer Edward S. Curtis was commissioned by J.P. Morgan to capture the “disappearing” race.
In 2014, to change perceptions about Native Americans, photographer Matika Wilbur believes we have to update the kind of imagery we’re looking at when we think of her race. It’s a beautiful — and important — idea.

Nadia Myre, Indian Act

Indian Act speaks of the realities of colonization - the effects of contact, and its often-broken and untranslated contracts. The piece consists of all 56 pages of the Canadian Federal Government’s Indian Act mounted on stroud cloth and sewn over with red and white glass beads. Each word is replaced with white beads sewn into the document; the red beads replace the negative space.
