The Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan will develop plans for a traveling quillwork exhibition and an accompanying catalog to expand public access to traditional Native American arts. The Ziibiwing Center of Anishinaabe Culture & Lifeways will work in conjunction with the Michigan State University Museum, Eyaawing Museum and Cultural Center of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, the Ojibwe Cultural Foundation, and others to develop the catalog and exhibition of historic and contemporary examples of quillwork produced by Great Lakes regional Native Americans. A field researcher will harvest photos of quillwork pieces in public and private collections and revitalize interest in quillworking through a multigenerational approach to planning that will include artists, elders, and youth. The resulting plan will allow partners to determine needed resources to host the traveling exhibition at their museums.
