The Tracy Wright Global Archive is a project that inspires artists to explore a burning question and create a new work by engaging deeply with communities and locations across the globe, seeking answers to their questions and inspiring new directions in their practice.
Yvette Nolan travelled to New Zealand as part of this Project. Please join us on Sunday, June 18 at 2:00pm as Yvette shares some of her thoughts and experiences from her time with the Maori people.
“I was grappling with what I knew, and what I did not know, my teachings and my knowledge, I wondered about how other Indigenous people “keep” culture. I went to Aotearoa, what you know as New Zealand, and went to marae, a community held meeting grounds of the Maori people, to see how they held on to culture in their cities and on their lands. I went, stripped of my medicine, of my good name, of feeling of community, to find out what I had left.” – Yvette Nolan
