Event Description

Misunderstood! features poems and artworks ranging from 1894 to 2017. As these works demonstrate, Native artists and writers have grappled with the same misperceptions of their communities for more than 100 years. These texts and images draw attention to neglected and curated histories about Native peoples in order to secure a better future. This is exhibited through the following themes: Stereotype Threat, Undoing History, Proud to Be an American, and Love/d. Together, the Native voices in this exhibition demand of the viewer the same thing: “Please don’t let us be misunderstood.”
