This presentation is the second of four events in this year’s Indian Arts Research Center Speaker Series.

This year’s Speaker Series, One Hundred Years Later: The Indian Arts Research Center and the Role of Collections in the Twenty-First Century, seeks to explore the role of collections, then and now, and the responsibility and accountability of collecting institutions to the communities they serve. Speakers from across the country will discuss museum practices, community collaboration, and the future of collections in the twenty-first century. Learn more about the full series here.
