Arigon Starr, a multimedia artist and enrolled member of the Kickapoo Tribe of Oklahoma, will give a musical performance and lecture at 7 p.m. on Feb. 16 at the OSU-Tulsa Auditorium. The event is free and the public is invited to attend.
She is the guest of Dr. Lindsey Smith, OSU associate professor of English and editor of the American Indian Quarterly, in partnership with the Tulsa Artist Fellowship. The fellowship is a project of the George Kaiser Family Foundation. Starr’s visit is in conjunction with Smith’s OSU-Tulsa course on Native American Studies and the Arts.
Starr is one of the founders of the first Indigenous Comic Con, which took place in Albuquerque last fall. She is the author of Super Indian and the just-released Tales of the Mighty Code Talkers. She will perform several songs and read from her works The Red Road and Super Indian. To learn more about Starr, visit the Arigon Starr website.
