"Ni Sin Mo’ Meh / To Weave Water" is a body of work that builds on the cultural connection between the Native Hawaiians or Kanaka Maoli of Sutter’s 1839 expedition and the Maidu families with whom they bonded.

This connection is about more than the shared social position of being forced laborers in a particular colonial moment.

It is also about Indigenous peoples’ from different parts of the world who share a philosophical and spiritual approach to water, specifically the movement, elements, and rhythm of water.

Willow sourced from Chico, California in Mechoopda territory is used in this work not only because of its traditional weaving capacity but also because of its medicinal healing capabilities and connection to mo’meh/water.
