Native American Quilting Culture with Tasha Abourezk
Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts – Tasha Abourezk, Omaha-based artist and member of the Three Affiliated Tribes in North Dakota, will share the history of quilting within her culture and how she uses textiles to explore her heritage. Attendees will have the opportunity to create personalized quilting squares by attaching their own identity onto cloth. Free and open to the public. About the Artist: Tasha Abourezk utilizes textiles to explore her Mandan/Hidatsa heritage and contemporary politics. In Abourezk’s Native American culture, textiles have always held a deep meaning. People are often honored with quilts throughout life’s important stages and accomplishments. Although Abourezk rarely makes quilts she harnesses the tradition of quilting and combines it with the power of art. She enjoys stitching culture and textiles together. Growing up, Abourezk experienced life in a way that few others could: she lived in National Parks. When the gates closed to the public the park opened for her to run free in wide open spaces. When she wasn't exploring at home she was roaming around her Grandmothers ranch on the Fort Berthold Reservation. Abourezk lived in an idealistic, nature-driven world among buffalo, rattlesnakes, horses, and gardens. She believes that her upbringing molded her into who she is as a creative person. Abourezk lives in Omaha with her husband and their three children. tashaabourezk.com
