Join us for an in-depth discussion on the topics of colonialism, resistance, and repatriation. This symposium explores the cutting edge of what artists, museum professionals, and scholars are doing to promote justice for Native American communities, both in the art world and beyond. Keynote will be contemporary artist, Wendy Red Star, and a panel discussion with Cinnamon Catlin-Legukto, President/CEO of the Abbe Museum and Dr. Sonya Atalay, Associate Professor of Anthropology at UMass-Amherst will follow.
