An interdisciplinary project that situates my matrilineage alongside larger notions of landscape, home, and gender. For the past year, I have researched the land homesteaded by my great-great-great-grandparents near Almena, Kansas, ten miles south of my native Nebraska and an hour’s drive from the geographic center of the United States. The landscape is vast, indistinguishable farmland. History reveals more absences than answers. Two 150-year-old trees at the site and a nearby pioneer cemetery where my maternal grandmother, her mother, and her mother’s mother are all buried, are vague markers of this history. In my return to this land, my matrilineage is subsumed by Mother Nature. The work archives and memorializes what remains of this place—personally significant and universally forgotten—while considering the ways certain histories are privileged over others.
