Joseph (wahalatsu?) Seymour Jr. (Squaxin Island/Pueblo of Acoma) is a visual artist who works in glass, photography, Salish wool weaving, printmaking, wood, and rawhide drums. His work in various mediums will be on view through February at the final exhibition curated by 2016 Genius Award winner Tracy Rector at Re:definition, a Native-centered art gallery located in the lobby of the Paramount Theatre. "The pervasive colonizer mentality of writing and rewriting history, to serve the needs of those in power, is a symptom of 'dis-ease' that impacts our global body," writes Rector in her curator statement. "As an act of healing, now is the time to decolonize false narratives, spaces, and our minds."
