Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Place, Nations, Generations, Beings: 200 Years of Indigenous North American Art, this panel brings together a group of museum professionals to discuss approaches to teaching with Indigenous American art and artifacts in museums. From exhibitions to school tours and public programming, museums wield enormous influence in shaping how visitors engage with objects. Using short case studies as a starting point, the conversation considers how museum educators and curators work to facilitate thoughtful and respectful investigations and interpretations of native objects.
