Making Medicine: Apsáalooke Conversations on Land, Water, Culture and Art
With Nina Sanders (Apsáalooke), Ben Pease (Apsáalooke), and Joree La France (Apsáalooke)
Join three Apsáalooke intellectuals in a conversation about the land, water, culture, and art. As a new generation of Indigenous thinkers, scholars, leaders, and artists enter a novel era of worldviews and creation they are faced with the increasing pressure to protect the culture, the community, and most importantly the land. Listen and engage with them as each speaker shares about their work and what it means to give-back, protect, make medicine, and how these values translate to their work with museums and other cultural institutions.
This event is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is encouraged.
This lecture is the first event in this year’s Indian Arts Research Center Speaker Series.
The School for Advanced Research’s Indian Arts Research Center presents a series of conversations exploring efforts to foster collaboration between museums and communities. Over the years, documents like SAR’s Guidelines for Collaboration have focused on person-to-person collaboration after realizing the critical importance of community input and partnerships within the museum field. This series highlights the history that led to this moment and current innovative partnerships, but also explores the potential of virtual and remote collaboration in the midst or wake of a global pandemic. This series celebrates the successes the field has witnessed as museum professionals, community members, and artists have had to pivot and adapt. In this series, we will hear from presenters who can speak to their experiences of the past year to share what they have learned as well as how they envision future community collaboration and participation in an increasingly digitized field.
