Skilled in traditional oration, Mohawk elder Kay Olan will weave a complex history of Akwesasne reservation and its ever changing relationship with the US and Canada using Salli Benedict's Little Boy Coat as a metaphor. Symbols, culture change, and resiliency are key components of the story. A physical representation of the coat is the centerpiece of the "Buckskin to Bikinis: Haudenosaunee Wearable Art" exhibit and Olan's twice daily presentations are part of the Museum's Labor Day weekend Festival.
