An exhibition of ceremonial suits and aprons made by Chiefs of New Orleans Black Masking Indian Tribes. This unique tradition maps intersections between African and Indigenous cultural practices. These intricately crafted suits take up to year to complete and represent some of the most exuberant costumes being made today. A panel discussion and artist reception on April 3 will feature Chief Demond Melancon of the Young Seminole Hunters and Big Chief Darryl Montana of the Yellow Pocahontas Hunters.
