Bridging the Gap:Remembering the Past to Build a Better Future" | Nakoa Moonblood
December 2018 – February 2019

Milwaukee born Native American Artist Nakoa Moonblood uses visual and performance art to showcase Native American culture, the importance of respecting nature, and the strength that comes with community unity.


The Bridging The Gap project is a showcase of the history of the Menomonee Valley amongst local tribes and shines light on the current revitalization of the land and community through drawings, paintings, photography, songs, and dance. 

The Menomonee Valley was once a valued area amongst Wisconsin tribes especially the Potawatomi and Menominee. As an important source of food, transportation, and commerce the Menomonee Valley thrived for hundreds of years before the Industrial Age. Present day organizations like the Urban Ecology Center have been able to give the community a chance to enjoy and value the area again through community projects, environmental education, exciting outdoor exploration programs and etc. We must remember the teachings of our ancestors as we continue to work together to restore the land to a beautiful greenspace and safe space amongst our community.
