Roles, Rules, & Responsibility: Northern California Two-Spirit Weavers
Exhibit Dates: Friday, November 3rd, 2023 – Friday, January 26th, 2024
Reception: Friday, November 3rd, 2023 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

This exhibit displays the talents of three Northern California Indian [two spirit] weavers; Silver Galleto (Southern Pomo/Coast Miwok), Jarred Lincoln-Stremberg (Karuk), and Augustine Granados-Young (Maidu) who found healing and identity through traditional weaving. Each weaver from their own respective tribes has honed their talents and developed their love of traditional weaving as a way to heal themselves and revitalize and strengthen their ties to their cultures. While each weaver comes from a different culture, some of the traditions parallel each other, and further show that weaving must be shared to ensure its survival regardless of whether it is done by a male or female- the preservation is the priority.
