Andrina Wekontash Smith is a storyteller, writer, and performer. She is an enrolled member of the Shinnecock Indian Nation and her work frequently explores Indigenous themes. Her training with tribal elders and historic preservation officers has positioned her uniquely to tell the narrative of her tribe, and she does that in her art as frequently as possible. She is an alumnus of the Watermill Center Residency and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY performing with her sketch team Like Butter as a weekend team at The PIT. Her solo work has been featured at the HERE arts center, SOLOCOM, UCB, and Dixon Place.
Smith will share an in-depth exploration into Long Island’s earlier history and how that history influences her work. Long Island’s cultural significance in the forming of the United States has long been neglected, as have the relevance of Native American Nation that have and currently reside there. Come and learn about connections to Long Island that, for too long, have gone undiscussed.
