Curated by Alison Powell

Exhibition Opening: Tuesday, July 30, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The word stélmexw in the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh language has been historically translated as a noun, “human being.” However, recent discussions among Elders and knowledge keepers found this translation to be inaccurate. It is now widely understood as “being human,” a verb signals the privilege and responsibility that comes along with active participation in a community.
