Textile works by Fon du Lac Ojibwe artist Maggie Thompson
Textile artist Maggie Thompson (Fon du Lac Ojibwe) utilizes a variety of weaving and knitting techniques, printed fabrics, and assemblage works as a way to contain memory, reflect, and convey difficult subject matter regarding Indian identity.
Her works are timely and revealing in the midst of the concentrated amounts of public media surrounding appropriation of Native material culture in the fashion industry, mascot issues, and the pressing subject matter of blood quantum and tribal enrollment.
