Root Division presents Ritual of Myth Making: Reclaim, curated by Katherin Canton & Mariana Moscoso.

Ritual of Mythmaking: Reclaim is an invitation to participate in ceremony. The exhibition will take viewers on a journey through time and space, exploring multiple Indigenous pasts, presents, and futures, resulting in a collective cycle of healing that embraces beauty, death, release, and abundance.

Myth making and ritual are central to Indigenous cosmology. These practices expand across time and space from Turtle Island to Abya Yala (the Western Hemisphere), becoming tools for collective liberation that (re)imagine and (re)create the world we live in. Through myth making, narratives are created and shifted that change self, community, and culture.

The artworks featured and co-created with community members are one of the many ways Indigenous Past (Indigenous Traditions) and Future (Indigenous Futurism) are merged, highlighting the hybrid forms of existing Indigenous people, both locally in California and across the world. Ritual of Myth Making: Reclaim centers healing, creates expansiveness, and offers visions of the future for Indigenous peoples.
