Native American Artifacts To Be Discussed

Woodland, Plains, Northwest Coast, Southwest and Arctic Native American art, as well as prehistoric and historic artifacts will be discussed at Indiana University Northwest on October 27 from 4 to 5:15 p.m. in Hawthorn Hall D400.

After a long tenure at the Field Museum in Chicago, Janice Klein, the new director of the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian at Kendall College in Evanston, will discuss Displaying Native American Artifacts and show slides of various museum collections which total about 6000.

Local Native Americans assist the museum in designing exhibits and programs. As a multi-ethnic community, the Mitchell Museum also provides interaction between staff and visitors to further understand culture and viewpoints of those involved.

Sponsored by the IU Northwest Anthropology and Sociology Clubs, the presentation is open to the community free of charge. For more information, telephone 219-980-7107.
