Birdman Rising #1: Jeff Thomas

Artist Jeff Thomas (Urban Iroquois/Haudenasaunee) speaks with AGG Senior Curator Andrew Hunter about his exhibition “Birdman Rising: Conversations with Colonialism,” the history of Mississippian culture in the St. Louis/Edwardsville area, and the Cahokia Mounds, while reflecting on his three decades of work, his relationship with his Elder (Emily General), his father, his son BEAR, and the many Birdmen he was encountered. Thomas and Hunter are working on a major solo exhibition of Thomas’s work for AGG.
