Native peoples have always been here. How are they influencing the world today and shaping our future? Join us for a special evening celebrating the exhibition The Land Carries our Ancestors: Contemporary Art by Native Americans. Nicholas Galanin (Lingít/Unangax̂)—an activist, musician, and visual artist—performs electro-soul as Ya Tseen. Hear pop-up talks in the galleries from curators and community members. Make your own art inspired by the land and environment. We thank Dr. Elizabeth Rule, author of Indigenous DC, for designing this program.
Lottery for registration opens Monday, October 30, and closes Thursday, November 2, at noon.
