“I use cultural iconography relevant to the Mvskoke people in much of my artwork.  Since 2008 I have been creating a body of artwork called ‘Mvskoke Journey’ which has helped me explore and come to terms with the devastating effects of the historical trauma handed down through my Native American family line. I also have a deep and profound connection to the natural world, especially when viewed through a Mvskoke lens, which is very evident in my art making.” Melinda Schwakhofer
