In this story, Jodi Heckel gives an overview of the Learning Lab activities and interviews Bob Morrissey about the goals of the project– to help revitalize hide painting traditions in the Peoria and Miami Tribal communities. Thanks Jodi!
The Reclaiming Stories project is a collaboration among members of the Peoria and Miami Tribes, along with associated scholars, working on history and practice of hide painting. The group formed in 2020 and won a major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation (through the Humanities Without Walls Consortium) to undertake a community-based research project through 2025. Look here for news and updates about this exciting project!
