Event Description
Stop by The Commons to view and learn about a selection of objects in the Spencer’s Global Indigenous Collections. This program occurs once a month with a different theme. In November, learn about the educational experiences of Native American students in the late 19th and early 20th centuries through works of art they made at boarding, industrial, and residential schools throughout the United States. Materials will be supplemented with photographs of boarding schools in the Northern Great Plains region.
