John Goodwin – Glass Plate
A Sand Blasted framed glass plate of the “Honorable House of Learning” designed specially for the NWIC 30th anniversary Pendleton blankets. The blanket design was conceived by Lummi artist, Lexie Tom with contributing ideas from Alfred B. Charles, Jr. and Samuel Cagey, Jr. The project was brought to life by Makah artist and graphic designer John Goodwin.
Goodwin has generously donated this 3’ X 4’ piece, bringing further life to the Honorable House of Learning which tells the journey of indigenous education at Northwest Indian College. In this house, traditional knowledge is our canoe – it leads us toward our cultural sovereignty with our elders watching over us.
