Manifest'o is a multi-media installation by Jonathan Thunder. The installation comes with messages that exist on two planes: the ephemeral (or transcendent) and the physical. The stories that these animated vignettes represent are based on the Indigenous people’s memory of this region of the continent — narratives that exist across time and space. They are older than America. Their persistence over time is purposeful as they help invoke an understanding of the water, the land, and the deep sky. Today, Indigenous people of this region perceive the local landscape with these stories in mind. It is through their lens that you are invited to see and hear as well. 

See this PDF for and introduction to and stories that inform Manifest'o.
