    Our project seeks to examine the Eastern Timber Wolf through frames of colonization, indigeneity, and resilience. We explore and question the relationship we as humans have with wolves, and how we exist in tandem with one another. By collecting literature, diagrams, numerical data, audio clips, and personal writings, we hope to offer a broad perspective into the wolves' past and potential future. We’ve gathered and divided our material into pseudo-chronological sections to tell a story of the interconnected history between the Eastern Timber Wolf and humanity. Of course, aiming to lay out the experience of the Timber Wolf chronologically risks oversimplifying that experience and erasing non-linear connections between time and place. Our hope is that by complicating more empirical and objective perspectives with less linear, more subjective epistemologies, we might help the viewer to build a more informed and intimate connection with the Eastern Timber Wolf. By weaving together multiple avenues of understanding–visual, literal, scientific, and historical/anthropological–we aim for providing a holistic yet personal view of the Eastern Timber Wolf as both an agent and an object in its experience with endangerment and survival.
