As part of ongoing conversations between Carnegie Museum of Natural History staff and members of the HAA community on the subjects of land acknowledgment, decolonization, and Indigenous representation and collaboration, please save the date for two days of programming featuring Dr. Jessie Ryker-Crawford. Dr. Ryker-Crawford (White Earth Chippewa) is Professor of Museum Studies and Director of the MFA in Cultural Administration Program at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM.

These events are co-organized and co-sponsored by HAA and CMNH with support from a Provost’s Year of Engagement grant.
