Wigwam Specifications, Native American bust


On our right, we have a photocopy of the actual digest of
plans and specifications for the wigwam's construction. Although I must say, after spending 37 days in there, the plans makes it look much bigger than it actually is.


On our left, we have a visit from Rev. Al Sharpton's then, midwest regional coordinator for his National Action Network. The Rev. Al Sharpton graciously supported the Students of Color Coalition in their occupation of the Michigamua wigwam in 2000. He not only provided much needed press coverage, but he framed the issue for the world- as one of basic humanity- dignity and respect. In this photograph you can see the outline of the wigwam and a Native American bust found inside the wigwam.
