Collaborative Goals

from the Finger Lakes area. Through public events and collaborations with cideries and tribal members, we engage in conversation about the multiple meanings of current art (visual, written, performance) and place. The fundraising elements of the working group utilize our professions in farming and fermentation to support funds, awareness and connection to place.

We utilize our combination funding sources and marketing efforts to support Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫʼ culture creators. We will stage events including art shows (the first is planned for May 2023) and public lectures to highlight contemporary Gayogo̱hó꞉nǫʼ culture and connect with other Native artists and speakers. The present is interpreted through each artist’s unique culture. We especially center the presence of Native cultures in the present, while envisioning the future and sharing a more complete story of the past.

Separately, we also seek to hold conversations in the Finger Lakes to strategize how we can utilize our orchards and cider making practices as connected to accountability of place. Engaging consumers to understand the Indigenous histories of the land and fruit, we desire to facilitate embedding social justice principles into practices of fermentation.
