Thursday, February 1 is the Opening Reception for Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness, a traveling exhibition coming to Century College Library this week!
The reception will be in Century College Library from 5-7 pm, with a blessing ceremony at 5:30 pm.
Light refreshments will be served.
Native Voices explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. Stories drawn from both the past and present examine how health for Native People is tied to community, the land and spirit. Through interviews, Native People describe the impact of epidemics, federal legislation, the loss of land, and the inhibition of culture on the health of Native individuals and communities today.
Native Voices will be on display in Century College Library for a six-week loan from January 31 to March 12, 2018.
