Indigenizing Curatorial Practice
Native scholars have written extensively on decolonizing museums that feature Native American history and culture. But is it possible to truly change the Euro-American model that most cultural museums offer? Join anthropologist, curator, and activist Deana Dartt (Chumash) and explore ways that museums can interrupt historic, European-American narratives and apply indigenized practices across every facet of the museum.
