Additional Information

The repatriation of Native arts over the last 30 years has demonstrated the sustainability of Indigenous knowledge and survivance strategies. How might this moment speak to the viability of the arts as cultural transmitters rather than solely objects of capital worth? The ethics of collecting Native arts are debated by a panel of experts, including Mercedes Dorame, Tongva artist; Sven D. Haakanson, Associate Professor, Department of Anthropology, University of Washington; Andrew Meyer, Visiting Graduate Researcher at UCLA Latin American Institute and Coordinator of the California Hub of the Institut des Amériques; Wendy Teeter, Curator of Archaeology, Fowler Museum; and Nancy Marie Mithlo, Professor, Department of Gender Studies.

Please join us before the lecture for a light welcome reception from 5:00-6:00pm. 

Copresented by the UCLA American Indian Studies Center, the UCLA Institute of American Cultures, and the California Hub of the Institut des Amériques.
