America Meredith named 2018 NSU Sequoyah Fellow

Published 4/25/18

(Tahlequah, Oklahoma) - Northeastern State University has announced the 2018 Sequoyah Fellow is America Meredith.

 

Meredith, a Cherokee Nation citizen, is the publishing editor of First American Art Magazine and is an author, artist and independent curator whose curatorial practice spans over two decades.

She earned her Master of Fine Arts from San Francisco Art Institute and has taught art history and the Cherokee humanities course at the Institute of American Indian Arts, Santa Fe Community College.

Meredith serves on the board of the Wheelwright Museum and the Cherokee Arts and Humanities Council.

“We are thrilled to continue the tradition of showcasing and honoring talented Cherokee citizens by identifying a Sequoyah Fellow in the College of Liberal Arts,” Interim Dean of the College of Liberal Arts Dr. Robyn Pursley said. “It also provides a wonderful opportunity for our campus and the Tahlequah community to engage with a successful Cherokee scholar.”

The Sequoyah Fellow program provides an opportunity for the university and College of Liberal Arts to recognize an outstanding scholar in the field of Native American Studies who will share their expertise with the NSU community during the fellowship year. Sequoyah Fellows are nationally and internationally renowned, have interest in scholarship and service to Native communities, and have records of distinction at the highest levels of professional accomplishment in their fields.

Wilma Mankiller, former Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation, served as the inaugural Sequoyah Fellow. Other past Sequoyah Institute Fellows include Jeff Corntassel (2017), Stacy Leeds (2016) and Neil Morton (2015).
