Members of Two Tribes are the Future of Judaism

Hosted By: The Weitzman National Museum Of American Jewish History

Join as we welcome the illustrator, author and educator, Emily Bowen Cohen, for a presentation celebrating the first day of Indigenous Peoples’ Month. During this program Cohen will discuss her own experiences as an Indigenous and Jewish American.

Cohen will use her own original drawings and comic panels to help illustrate the myriad ways in which people with intersectional identities are creating spaces for themselves in todays Jewish community. She will also reflect on themes common to Jewish and Indigenous American experiences such as the importance of places that feel like home, historical persecution and oppression, and cultural traditions. Cohen is best known for her memoir-style comics including her book An American Indian Guide to the Day of Atonement, in addition to several other published essays, such as My Sioux-kot and Visiting National Parks While Native.

The event listed here is hosted by a third party. My Jewish Learning/70 Faces Media is not responsible for its content or for errors in the listing.

Emily Bowen Cohen

Emily Bowen Cohen is a writer and visual artist. This summer, she was the Peleh Foundation Artist-in-Residence in Berkeley, CA. Her graphic novel, Two Tribes, will be published June 2023 by Heartdrum, a Native-focused imprint at HarperCollins. Emily’s background informs her passion for creating complicated Indigenous characters. She is a member of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and grew up in rural Oklahoma. Her father was the Chief of Staff at their tribal hospital and her mother is a nice Jewish girl from New Jersey. After her father’s early death, she was separated from her Native family. A decade later, she returned to Oklahoma for a bittersweet homecoming. She’s been writing and drawing stories about the weirdness of being Indigenous in America ever since.
