The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire American Indian studies program and the philosophy and religious studies, art, and English departments, with the support of the Visiting Minority Scholar/Artist Program, will sponsor presentations during the week of March 5-9.
Alex and Ken Seowtewa, a father and son team of artists from Zuni Pueblo, N.M., have been working on a large mural project at the old mission church in Zuni. They have spoken widely in the United States and in Europe, and their project has been featured in several TV documentaries.
They will present The World of the A:shiwi or the Zuni Indians at noon Wednesday, March 7, in the Menominee Room of Davies Center. Attendees may bring their lunches to eat during the presentation.
During a free public lecture, they will discuss Connections between Ancient Petroglyphs and Contemporary Zuni Art at 7:30 p.m. in Schofield Auditorium. They also will visit several American Indian studies and religious studies classes.
