Join Stephanie Mach (Diné), Peabody Museum Curator of North American Collections and Diné (Navajo) guests for a panel conversation about the ways they each care for Navajo cultural heritage within their various areas of work and interest. This event provides an opportunity to hear from Navajo scholars who will share their experiences protecting and stewarding cultural heritage in museums and in community.
Following the panel conversation, attendees are encouraged to visit the Hall of the North American Indian at the Peabody Museum—from 7:15 to 8:00 pm—where Harvard students will be available to share information about key cultural items on display.
Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
