They Came, They Claimed, They Named, and We Blame: Art Education in Negotiation and Conflict

The Octagon Mound in Newark, Ohio was named one of the 70 wonders of the ancient world (Scarre, 1999), and yet today, this American Indian spiritual space is occupied by a private country club whose golf course winds around the mound. This article describes Indigenous, colonial, and academic voices regarding mound access issues and community-based arts events that explore these dialogues. Power, positioning, coalition building, and colonial tensions are captured through the methodology of narrative portraits. Colonial, decolonial, and self-determinate theories are utilized in analyzing the narratives. A consulting collaborative approach is explored and suggested as one way of responding to practices, research, and injustices that continue to face American Indians. (Contains 6 figures and 6 endnotes.)
