Opening Reception for “Kokom Lena of the First Nation Algonquin”

February 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

For 20 years, Syracuse photographer Michael Greenlar documented four generations of Algonquins in the bush of Quebec, Canada. His work focuses on the matriarch, Lena Nottaway, and the knowledge she passed on through her 15 children. Lena taught Kokomville how to utilize every element of the environment to become a self-sustaining community. The series of photographs is a testament to the cultural survival of the Algonquin people of Barrier Lake, La Vérendrye Park, Quebec, Canada. Despite broken treaties and clear-cut logging, these First Nation people continue to use the land as their traditions dictate.

The exhibition is in partnership with Art Rage Gallery. An opening reception will take place on February 3rd, 2019 from 3pm-5pm at the Skä•noñh Center.
