About the Artist
Mihku Paul is a Maliseet writer and visual artist. She has worked with schools in the greater Portland region to design and implement curriculum enrichment modules on Waponahki culture.
Mihku is a graduate of the Stonecoast MFA program in creative writing and published poet. Her visual art has been auctioned by the Sierra Club and the Abbe Museum to support those endeavors.
Her skill sets include all genres of writing, graphic art design, live performance,
storytelling, and project management.
Her mixed media exhibit "Look Twice: The Waponahki in Image & Verse" was featured at the Abbe Museum and will soon be on display at the USM Glickman LIbrary. She is available for teaching writing to youth, speaking engagements, Diversity presentations and poetry performance.
"My goal with any creative work is to involve the audience, reading, listening and observing so that they might rethink old notions of Native identity and culture. I want to acknowledge traditional roots while presenting various forms of Native art in a contemporary context."
