Ursala Hudson (Kadusné) is a transdisciplinary artist of European, Filipino, and Alaska Native (Tlingit) descent, T’ak Deintaan clan from the Head House of the Raven moiety. Raised amidst her parents’ full-time multi-media artist lifestyle, Ursala explores the experience of a modern-day, globalized Woman with complex ancestry through two-dimensional performance and fiber arts. Join us for a special talk with the artist as she discusses using traditional weaving techniques and her approach to her inspiring art and fashion pieces.

Ursala’s woven garments have walked runways internationally and been collected by museums such as the Burke and the Smithsonian American Art Museum. She was one of six indigenous artists in the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s 2023 invitational, “Sharing Honors and Burdens.” Ursala is a recipient of the Native Arts and Culture’s LIFT and First Peoples Fund Artist in Business Leadership fellowships. Most recently, Ursala was awarded a Radical Imaginations fellowship from the NDN Collective to realize the creation of a Chilkat “totem pole.” The two-year full-time process of weaving the pole is intended to prompt discourse around gendered art making and the disproportionate support traditionally female-made work receives — both energetically and monetarily — from within indigenous communities and without.
