The Transformation of Indigenous Cultural Practices by Colonial Powers
Mairin Odle, Ph.D.
In Person - Registration Required
December 8, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Mairin Odle, Ph.D., Assistant Professor for the Department of American Studies from the University of Alabama, highlights cross-cultural engagements in Indigenous culture and the role of narrative and memory-making in colonial projects (as well as in Indigenous resistance to those projects). This talk references our exhibition Voices So True: New Native American Art from the Clyde Oyster Bequest to focus on the ways images of Nativeness were adopted and transformed by American artists and society.
This program is in conjunction with Voices So True: New Native American Art from the Clyde Oyster Bequest.
