Joan Naviyuk Kane: The visual image could be the photographic negative of topography from the air, a cell, or the detail from a larger work. Lisa Sette: The poem carried me to unusual strands of memories. Do you see an overlap between the act of translation and the act of responding visually to a piece of literature?

Ugiuvaŋmiuguruŋa/I am from King Island by Joan Kane - Literature. My family comes from King Island (Ugiuviak), Alaska, a remote island in the Bering Sea that has been uninhabited since the Bureau of Indian Affairs forcibly relocated our people off the island in 1959 under pressure from the federal government’s policy of assimilating Native Americans.
Like many King Islanders in my generation, I have never been to my ancestral home. My mother last returned in 1974, before my birth. I am seeking funding in order to research, undertake, and document a trip to the King Island while my mother and her remaining siblings-- as well as others who were born and raised on the island-- are still alive, interested, and capable of making the trip together to ensure that King Islanders remain connected to our ancestors, culture, and place of origin.
