Past is Present: Margaret Horn presents “Mohawk Ironworkers”
We have a theme that is inspirational to the Tahawus Center. We call it “Past is Present.” It represents our commitment to integrating the unique history of our region – this homeland – with contemporary and future possibilities. And this is behind each of the Tahawus Center’s presentations of art, craft, skills, along with history and current expressions of our region, particularly Native Content.
Margaret Horn is Mohawk from Kahnawake, Bear Clan. Margaret spends time between Kahnawake – and the Adirondacks – the traditional homeland of her nation. She has been executive producer for many documentaries involved in history, health, and tourism. She has curated the acclaimed exhibits at the Tahawus Center, “Mohawk of the Adirondacks” showing native works of traditional and contemporary art, jewelry, and craft. Margaret Horn is also the Associate Producer/Director of the new documentary, “Mohawk Ironworkers” which the Tahawus Center has now arranged to show at the Hollywood Theater in Au Sable Forks, NY.
