TAN-WETTA-PEKSI - UP WHERE I BELONG
A Fine Art Exhibition By Dozay about
Her Story, and Her People
September 27 - October 31,2002
UCCB Art Gallery, Sydney, N.S.
Aboriginal fine arts exhibitions in Atlantic Canada are unique and rare.
Not only do these exhibitions demonstrate a distinct style, but their
messages are rooted in a culture and a history that can only be found
along the East Coast of North America.
Traditionally, the Aboriginal Peoples of the East Coast identify themselves
as the Wabanaki- The People of the Dawn. The Mik'maq, Maliseets, Passamaquoddy
and, the Penobscot, also the Eastern and Western Abenaki, are all part
of the Wabanaki Family.
The traditional territory of the Maliseets, or the Wolastoqiyik is along
the St. John River of New Brunswick and Eastern Maine. (Wolastoqiyik
means, "The People or the Shining River"). It is from these
roots that Dozay presents the beauty and the uniqueness of the Wabanaki
as a celebration of her culture, ancestors and family
Dozay has chosen to call her Exhibit 'Tan-Wetta-peksi'-Maliseet word
meaning 'Up Where I Belong', or where I belong. Not only does she bring
out the distinctiveness of her own family and people, but she also interweaves
her work with the spirit of other wabanaki Peoples, especially the Mik'maq,
with whom she has lived among for most of her life.
Dozay's Oil and Airbrush Originals display a seamless relationship between
the two East Coast Peoples. In the same way, she brings together the
past and the present,into a spiritual unity of love, strength and beauty:
Her deep affection and devotion for her People is clearly evident. Dozay's
earthy tones and colors are subtle, yet daring- powerfully expressing
her closeness to Mother Earth.
In a Deeper sense, Dozay's work shows her intense longing for her original
Wolastoqiyik roots. Her roots seem so distant to her at times because
she has lived most to of her adult life away from the ways of her People.
Dozay is dedicating this exhibition to her family- the roots that anchor
and nourish her life: She is also dedicating the proceeds from this
unique exhibition to the advancement of Aboriginal Fine Art and Music,
in Unama'ki or Cape Breton Island.
It is her dream that she can inspire and help others to touch their
roots and bring out the beauty of their People.
