In conjunction with the exhibition Dara Friedman: Perfect Stranger, PAMM presented a special screening of Friedman’s short film Ishmael and the Well of Ancient Mysteries (2014). The film centers on Ishmael “Golden Eagle” Bermúdez, who spent years excavating the backyard of his property in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood in search of the ancient spring of the Tequesta, a Native American tribe that inhabited Southeastern Florida from the 3rd century BCE through the mid-1700s.
On January 27th, 2018 Robert S. Carr—former director of Miami-Dade County’s Office of Historic Preservation and co-founder of the Archeological and Historical Conservancy—gave an in depth lecture about the Tequesta legacy.
