Indigenizing Museums

Thursday, November 3, 2022 at 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

What can museums achieve when indigeneity and reciprocity are introduced? During this experience, we will discuss what museums gain when they focus on BIPOC representation at all levels. This event will be guided by Hunter C. Old Elk, from the Apsáalooke and Yakama Nations. Old Elk is the Assistant Curator of the Plains Indian Museum at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West in Cody, Wyoming.
