The multi-dimensional map invites our engagement with the land. The exquisite design and patterns of the earth from satellite photographs are portrayed through a textured relief that gives form to the cultural teachings of the Nuwuvi. The 2’ by 3’ poster will be proudly displayed in kitchens and living rooms, at preschools and senior centers, in health clinics and tribal headquarters. The map is a way to display cultural pride, traditional knowledge and survivance – the healing transformation that occurs through cultural revitalization and the continued resistance to colonialism.
