Exhibiting artwork made from corn husk as well as sharing the versatility of the corn plant.
“Cornhusk protects. It has protected the integrity of the corn seed on each cob, on every stalk in every field, every year, for too many years to count. Corn is still gathered, and the husk is still braided for storing the same way that it has been for several years over many generations. The husk that has and continues to protect the integrity of each kernel of corn is now used to protect the stories.” – Elizabeth Doxtater
Elizabeth Doxtater is one of the featured artists in this Exhibit alongside Frazer Sundown.
“Corn husk is something that is natural and comes from the earth. It becomes medicinal when working with corn husk and brings a sense of peace when working with it. Working with corn husk also brings people together where language, culture, and history is passed on orally. That being said, working with corn husk is not only a revitalization of weaving, however it brings our culture alive in its truest form.” – Frazer Sundown
