NATIVE VOICES EXHIBITION

Lewis D. Cannell Library of Clark College Libraries<http://library.clark.edu/> in Vancouver, Washington has been selected by a competitive application process to host Native Voices: Native Peoples' Concepts of Health and Illness<https://www.nlm.nih.gov/nativevoices/traveling/index.html>, a traveling exhibition to U.S. libraries.


*        Cannell Library will host the traveling exhibition for a six-week loan during its tour of the United States from February 9 through March 16, 2016.

*        A guide to relevant resources<http://library.clark.edu/?q=content/native-voices> is provided by Clark College Reference & Instruction Librarians.

*        Check the Clark College Libraries<http://library.clark.edu/> website for more details and information about additional community events.

Native Voices explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness, and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. Stories drawn from both the past and present examine how health for Native People is tied to community, the land and spirit. Through interviews, Native People describe the impact of epidemics, federal legislation, the loss of land, and the inhibition of culture on the health of Native individuals and communities today.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) developed and produced Native Voices: Native People, Concepts of Health and Illness. The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, in partnership with NLM, tours the exhibition to America's libraries.
