The Block Museum presents Cloudless Blue Egress of Summer (2019) a two-channel video (13:15 min) by artist and filmmaker Sky Hopinka (b. 1984, Ho-Chunk Nation/Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians). A recent addition to The Block Museum collection, the work investigates the Indigenous histories of Fort Marion, Florida (also known as Castillo de San Marco). Built in 1672, Fort Marion served as a prison during the Seminole Wars in the 1830's, and a prison at the end of the Indian Wars in the late 1880's. It was where Captain Richard Pratt developed a plan of forced assimilation through education that spread across the United States to boarding schools, built with the philosophy "that all the Indian there is in the race should be dead. Kill the Indian in him, and save the man."
