ReMapping NATIVE Denver

Sep 1, 2021

What happens when you approach representations of space by centering the stories, landscapes, art, and oral traditions of Native peoplesinstead of colonized images which erase the historical and continued presence of Indigenous people? DU’s Museum of Anthropology is hosting an exhibit from September 7–24th that explores this question. 

Please join them for an opening reception on Thursday, September 16, from 4–6 pm in 

Sturm Hall to celebrate the new exhibition “ReMapping NATIVE Denver,” featuring artwork by Viki Eagle, Jolynne Woodcock, George Levi, and Kristina Badhand, as well as guest contributions by Isaac Rivera and Erin McCarley.

Register for the opening reception  

The exhibit is one way faculty can implement curricular recommendations from the John Evans Report Task Force on Native-American inclusivity, which aimed to promote “greater inclusion of Native American topics and themes in existing courses and recommends the expansion of Native American curriculum at all academic levels.”
