Connections: What we can learn about Native American culture by studying Native materials

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

What kinds of stories can be told by studying material objects? In other words, what can we learn about a culture and its people based on the clothing, housing, tools, and art that they produce?

That’s the focus of an upcoming symposium at Ganondagan. We talk about what we can learn from Native materials. Our guests:

  • Michael Galban, curator and historian at the Seneca Art and Culture Center at Ganondagan, and organizer of the Symposium on Woodland Material Culture and Art
  • Mindy Magyar, assistant professor of industrial design at the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at RIT
