Artist Statement:


    The video installation “everlasting” (2016) incorporates imagery of the Everlasting Tree wampum belt and close-up footage of a cluster of white pine needles. On the wampum belt, the purple triangular forms represent the Tree of Peace: the great white pine designated by the Peacemaker, under which the five founding nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy buried their weapons. The footage of the white pine in this installation was shot on the mountain of Montreal/Tioh’tiá:ke.
