USD Hosts Waroxi Performance and Feast
Her participatory performance will explore the change in lifeways due to missionary efforts to convert Native Americans to Christianity. It specifically draws on language loss and addresses contemporary economic strategies of American Indian tribes.
The event will also include an educational feast in which guests are invited to learn about the diversity among the 567 federally recognized tribes existing within the United States today. Individual tribes and their histories will be represented on hand-stippled styrofoam plates with corresponding placemats.
Pursel will also host an artist talk with USD fine arts students on Nov. 14 at 2 p.m. in the Warren M. Lee Center for Fine Arts, room 172.
Pursel received her B.F.A. in painting from the University of Missouri and her M.F.A. in expanded media from the University of Kansas. She is an enrolled member of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska. Through art, she educates others about contemporary Indigenous issues, food politics, language loss, appropriation, revitalization, and history.
