Forge Project announces six 2023 Fellows

May 16, 2023 12:11 pm

The Times Union reports that the Forge Project, a Native-led art, culture, and decolonial education initiative in Columbia County, has six 2023 fellows: Margeaux Abeyta (from the Taos Pueblo and Diné tribes), Brent Michael Davids (Mohican/Munsee-Lenape), Lucy Grignon (Stockbridge-Munsee/Menominee), Emily Johnson (Yup’ik), Dr. Suzanne Kite (Oglála Lakȟóta) and Rachel Martin (Tlingít). Forge Project Executive Director Candice Hopkins (Carcross/Tagish First Nation) said, “We’re excited to introduce our third annual class of Forge Fellows, whose interdisciplinary approaches as creators, innovators and organizers speak to the rich complexity of Native and Indigenous thought today.” Columbia County is part of the ancestral homeland of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican Indians, who were forced to move to Wisconsin, and the Forge program always keeps two fellowship spots for members of the Stockbridge-Munsee tribe. Each Fellow receives a $25,000 grant and use of the Forge Project site, libraries, and collection of contemporary art by Indigenous artists during three-week rotating residencies.
