In the late 1990s a replica Occaneechi village was constructed in Hillsborough along the Eno River, modeled on an original c.1700 village that stood nearby. The replica village became a much visited attraction, and a place for pow-wows and living history events. When the Occaneechi gained tribal status in 2002, the replica village was moved to their nascent cultural center in Alamance County, leaving only a sample of the aging cedar palisade behind. The shadows falling from this line of posts that caught the artist’s eye, inspiring a series of paintings and drawings.
