VIRTUAL - Inclusive Museum Narratives: Contextualizing Collections through Collaboration

October 18, 2022 @ 7:00 pm PDT

This is an online event.

Lecturer: Alaka Wali

Ever wonder how museum exhibits are made? Join Alaka Wali as she discusses how the Field Museum (Chicago) approached their recent renovation of the Native North America hall.  Wali will explain the museum’s collaborative approach that involved working with an advisory committee of Native American scholars, museum professionals, artists, and activists.  The Field Museum also reached out to over 100 people across the United States and Canada to bring Native American voices and perspectives into the exhibition display.  The process also led to the beginning of reforms in how the museum provides access to the anthropology collections for source communities and how they are conceptualizing stewardship of the collections with Native American Tribes and First Nations.
