Throughout fall of 2018 The Seattle Public Library is partnering with yəhaw̓, an Indigenous-led arts project, to showcase indigenous art and artists. In addition to three artist residencies, The Library is hosting This Is Our Home, Where We Belong: Coast Salish Female Artists on Identity, Spirituality, and Environment - an exhibit featuring the original artwork of five Coast Salish women exploring environmental justice, identity, and place, curated by Denise Emerson (Diné/Twana). The residencies, exhibit, and many related public programs were developed by executive project producers Tracy Rector (Choctaw/Seminole), Asia Tail (Cherokee), and Satpreet Kahlon, along with the guidance from the Library’s Native Advisory Council.
