Este Cate - Nicholson Billey

Este Cate (pronounced stuh-jaw-duh) is Mvskoke for “Indian” and is an interweaving of five Native stories that attempts to disrupt the notion of a Native “stasis.” Este Cate, as a performance toward Native resurgence, pushes into, through, and beyond this stasis into an emergent and unconventional Native thriving.

2019-Gown-Cap-And A Tassel

2019-Gown-Cap-And A Tassel was created in May 2019 as a series of simple photos and brief videos by Nicholson Billey and co-curated with Rayson James Dix (Chahta & Mvskoke). 2019-Gown-Cap-And A Tassel is a protest through visual resistance that intends to project back toward the industrial complex of academia how it rigidly imposes its assimilative agenda onto any who may be deemed as alternative. As resistant. As Other. 2019-Gown-Cap-And A Tassel was maintained for one year on Sylvia Dix’s (Chahta & Mvskoke) wooden backyard fence in Preston, Oklahoma.
