Wampum / ᎠᏕᎳ ᏗᎦᎫᏗ, a Performance by Elisa Harkins (Virtual)

Nov 12

In conjunction with the CEAM Artist Residency, we are pleased to present “Wampum / ᎠᏕᎳ ᏗᎦᎫᏗ,” a performance by Elisa Harkins; co-organized with the Frost Art Museum, FIU, Miami.

Harkins’ performance, Wampum / ᎠᏕᎳ ᏗᎦᎫᏗ,  is an ongoing project where the artist sings in a combination of Cherokee, English and Muscogee (Creek) to electronic dance music, some of which is inspired by of sheet music of Indigenous music notated by Daniel Chazanoff during the 20th century. As an act of Indigenous Futurism, it combines disco and Indigenous language in an effort to alter the fate of these endangered languages through active use, preservation on pressed vinyl and radio play.
