Convocation —Richard Zane Smith. "De Tawakontah." (Wyandot for "The Beginning")

Richard Zane Smith will show slides and speak on his research into the origins of all primitive art and puebloan and woodland ceramics. Smith is a renowned potter of Wyandot descent whose works of art have appeared in numerous books and publications. Smith's work has also been featured in exhibits at the Philbrook Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma, The American Craft Museum in New York City, the Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona and the Denver Art Museum. He was originally inspired by shards of corrugated ware hundreds of years old that were reminiscent of basketry. He is reawakening the pottery legacy of the Anasazi but adding contemporary color and design.

Smith became interested in his Native American heritage in his late teens. Wyandots, a mixed blooded people of central Ohio, were forced from their homelands in 1843 and bought lands where Kansas City now stands. There, some of Smith's ancestors refused forced U.S. assimilation and demanded to be left on tribal rolls. Many moved to the northeast corner of Oklahoma where they settled and became recognized federally as the Wyandot nation of Oklahoma. Smith, a direct descendent of famous Chief Tarhe, is now living in Oklahoma to help revive the disappearing culture, especially through the arts.
