Exploring Haudenosaunee Pottery, Seedkeeping, and Cultural Heritage

Join us for an enlightening Zoom panel discussion featuring Akwesasne Mohawk artist Natasha Smoke Santiago, Garth Johnson, Curator of Ceramics at Everson Museum of Art, and esteemed guests involved in the practice of Haudenosaunee seedkeeping.

Natasha Smoke Santiago has spent the last two decades mastering traditional Haudenosaunee pottery techniques. Her unique work incorporates storytelling, activism, and the exploration of native foodways, including experiments with seedkeeping and collaborations with Indigenous chefs. The exhibition’s title, O’tá (pronounced oh-da-law), reflects a Mohawk phrase that means both “our clay” and “our clan,” underscoring clay’s foundational role in Haudenosaunee culture.

Don’t miss this opportunity to delve into the rich cultural heritage and contemporary practices of the Haudenosaunee community. Engage with our panelists, ask questions, and be part of an inspiring conversation.

Creatives Rebuild New York (CRNY), a project of the Tides Center, is a three-year $125 million investment in the financial stability of New York State Artists and the organizations that employ them. This exhibition was made possible through support from CRNY’s Artist Employment Program.
