15 Years on the Ride to Wounded Knee

Ken Marchionno Imagemaker Presentation

Saturday, November 02 - 4:30PM to 4:45PM
de Saisset Museum Auditorium

Since 2004 I have worked with members of the Lakota tribes of South Dakota to cover an annual, nearly 300-mile memorial horseback ride to the site of the Wounded Knee massacre. I will show that work, including stills and videos produced by me and by teens and young adults on the ride. I will share the experience of producing the project, how it's changed in context, form, and concept over the course of 15 years.

The project is community engaged and leverages social media platforms. It includes works by collaborating teens and young adults and offers an empowered visibility as an alternative to common representations of reservation life that focus on poverty and more ostensible effects of transgenerational trauma.
