Kunįkága Remember Red Banks, Kunįkága Remembers the Welcome Song

The video traverses the history and the memory of a place shared by both the Ho-Chunk and settler: Red Banks, a Ho-Chunk village site near present day Green Bay, WI was also the site of Jean Nicolet’s landing, who in 1634 was the first European in what is now called Wisconsin. Images and text are used to explore this space alongside the artist's grandmother’s recollections. Each serve as representations of personal and shared history, as well as of practices and processes of remembrance.
