I share a curatorial and design project entitled “Return to the Yakni Chitto: Houma Migrations” where I worked with Monique Michelle Verdin (photographs) and Ray Moose Jackson (poems) to create a transportable exhibition.
Sponsored by the Neighborhood Story Project.
“At the exhibit opening, we are inspired by the peñas of Latin America to bring together a group of performances to honor Return to Yakni Chitto within an international context. The evening will open up with the collective involved in the book and exhibit with performances by Bulbancha Is Still a Place: Indigenous Culture from New Orleans, LLCPaul Catafago and Simon Moushabeck, Antonio Garza, Rochez Zechor (i.e. Zechor Fashion), and the most excellent band for dancing, José Fermin Ceballos and his band Merengue4-Four.” -Rachel Breunlin
