Artifacts Through Native Perspectives
Wednesday, February 05, 2020 |
6:00PM - 8:00PM
Join the Free Library of Philadelphia's One Book One Philadelphia's citywide program to read Tommy Orange's powerful book There There.
Go behind the scenes at the Penn Museum to look closely at artifacts not on view and gain insight into the meaning, care, and preservation of historic and contemporary Native North American artifacts and art. Learn about repatriation and the work of some of today’s leading Native activists and tour the exhibition Native American Voices: The People—Here and Now. If you carry Native American heritage, share your story, and discuss important issues for Native Americans today as we all expand our understanding of Indigenous histories and the living legacies of colonization.
Guests may arrive as early as 5:00 p.m. to explore the museum before the event.
