"The Customs of Our Ancestors": The Wendat Art of Moosehair Embroidery

Did you say “moose hair embroidery?” That’s right. Moose hair embroidery is among the least studied and written about forms of visual art by Indigenous women of the Eastern Woodlands. Created as domestic objects or commercial souvenirs, scholars have only recently begun to consider these categories suitable subjects for academic study. To push beyond the conventions of the Western art historical canon, researchers must use innovative approaches to their study. Join us for a fun evening as we look at Wendat moose hair embroidery from important collections such as the Denver Art Museum, the Canadian Museum of History, and the National Museum of Denmark. This lively presentation by Dr. Annette de Stecher will explore how using material culture methods together with community-based and archival research provides us with new ways of seeing and understanding this unique art form. Recovering knowledge of Indigenous expertise, practices, and the identity of artists brings the histories of these artworks and the voices of their creators to the forefront.

Dr. Annette de Stecher is an assistant professor in the department of Art and Art History at the University of Colorado, Boulder. A specialist in historical and contemporary Native North American visual arts, Dr. de Stecher’s areas of expertise include museum and curatorial studies and material culture research, with a focus on eastern Woodlands and Inuit art.

AAA & CCLS: Wang: What Was the Terracotta Army For?

The First Emperor’s tomb complex, with its auxiliary pits filled with thousands of life-size terracotta figures, has been hailed as the Eighth Wonder of the World. Other than the massive scale of the underground formation, what is it that we should really wonder about? Mysteries abound. Join Professor Eugene Y. Wang of Harvard University to explore; why do these figures wear strange slanting hairdo rarely seen at the time? Why do the terracotta army and the emperor’s “spirit carriages” face opposite directions? If the body is unreliable, as studies of Chinese belief indicate, how was afterlife imagined? Was the tomb complex really about the preservation of the emperor’s corpse? Was the terracotta army there to defend the First Emperor’s tomb?
