  • This tape is drawn from what was originally a virtual reality project. The artist desribes it ÒIn it, the longhouse is given a space in time which I use to show a religious concept, to physically bring people into contact with a native worshipping aspect of life, praying Indians...What it is like being in a posessed state of feeling rhythmic sounds in a longhouse, feeling sounds go through one s own self, feeling a spirit inside you...Always, I create art to communicate with others, to let other cultures see things for themselves. To show my world, Indian world, to show you that we do have a spirit, a place to go, so people will understand who I am as a West Coast native person.
