Performance artist Dohee Lee is collaborating with Sogorea Te’ Land Trust to create When the Land Stands Alone, an effort to unite through shamanic practice two communities of indigenous practitioners in Huichin Village (the Ohlone name for Oakland) and on Jeju Island, South Korea. In each of the locations, Dohee will collaborate traditional practitioners of community ritual and healing, studying how indigenous practices evolve when the lands they are practiced on have been impacted by colonization and environmental destruction. For the Creative Work Fund-supported project phase, Dohee Lee will engage with Corrina Gould and Sogorea Te’ Land Trust. Their process will culminate in four seasonal public ritual performances in 2023 at sacred Ohlone sites in Oakland.
