This panel introduces the process of collaborative ethnography, a method of co-creation the Neighborhood Story Project (NSP) uses to produce books. The panel will discuss working together to create the first full-length book co-written by a Mardi Gras Indian tribe and the politics of collective bodies of work from Indian suits to exhibits and books. The panel includes:  Big Chief Victor Harris, Master Designer Jack Robertson, drummer Wesley Phillips, and their official photographer, visual anthropologist Jeffrey Ehrenreich. Director of the NSP, Rachel Breunlin, will lead the conversation.
