Joy Lehuanani Enomoto
As a Black, Kanaka Maoli, Japanese, Scottish, Caddo and Punjabi visual artist, I engage with issues of climate justice, plantation genealogies and the memory of violence within land and seascapes. Concerned primarily with issues impacting Oceania, my work combines drawing, printmaking, fiber art and photography. Driven by our ancestors, our rivers and our mountains, my process is not an individual practice. I am committed to collaborating with other artists/writers and communities who are fighting for social justice and the protection of our sacred lands and waters.
