Deconstructing Pocahontas

Deconstructing Pocahontas

This artwork is part of an ongoing series called Deconstructing Pocahontas and is dedicated to Matoaka of the Powhatan Nation; or Pocahontas, as she is more popularly known. The true story of her life, her disappearance, and her death remains unknown. As a result, she is shaped and reshaped to fit Western ideologies while her true identity is ignored. Four hundred years later, the cycle continues as Indigenous women are murdered and go missing without reparation. It is important to recognize and commemorate these women.
