Experience Wampum / ᎠᏕᎳ ᏗᎦᎫᏗ, an ongoing project in which Elisa Harkins sings in a combination of Cherokee, English and Muscogee (Creek) to electronic dance music. As an act of Indigenous Futurism, this performance combines disco and Indigenous language in an effort to alter the fate of these endangered languages through active use, preservation on pressed vinyl and radio play.


The intention of Wampum / ᎠᏕᎳ ᏗᎦᎫᏗ performance is to create a metaphorical peacekeeping agreement that is between the people watching the piece, regardless of tribe or race.
