Carole Lindstrom & Steph Littlebird - My Powerful Hair - at Conn Ave

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, March 21, 2023 - 10:30am

My Powerful Hair shares an empowering and healing celebration of hair and its significance across Indigenous cultures. As hair is the physical manifestation of the spirit, cutting, burying or burning hair has strong significance and meaning. Vibrant illustrations and a revealing narrative celebrate the culture of Native Americans as it touches on the painful history of Indian boarding schools.

Steph Littlebird is an Indigenous artist, writer, curator, and a member of Oregon’s Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. She received national recognition as curator of This IS Kalapuyan Land (2020) an exhibition at the Five Oaks Museum in Portland, which was featured by ArtNews and PBS NewsHour.
