Experience the past, present, and future of our Native American community with lecture and artifacts.
This presentation, by Amber Annis (Cheyenne River Lakota), Director of Native American Initiatives of the Minnesota Historical Society, and her team will provide an overview of the work that they do across Minnesota and beyond to share their resources and provide access to the Historical Society. They will discuss the work being done to strengthen the representation of Native nations and communities in Minnesota.
The Native American Student Alliance of Stillwater Area High School (NASA) will be in the Gallery demonstrating educational trunks of artifacts, cultural, and historical information created by the Native American Parent Advisory Council of ISD #834 (NAPAC) for use in elementary classrooms. Two videos showing the work of these two groups will be presented.
This program is presented in partnership with NAPAC and Stillwater’s Friday Study Club.
