Caring for Navajo Culture: In Museums and Beyond

Wednesday, Nov. 15, join Stephanie Mach (Diné), Peabody Museum Curator of North American Collections and Diné (Navajo) guests for a hybrid panel conversation about the ways they each care for Navajo cultural heritage within their various areas of work and interest. This event provides an opportunity to hear from Navajo scholars who will share their experiences protecting and stewarding cultural heritage in museums and in community. Following the panel conversation, attendees are encouraged to visit the Hall of the North American Indian at the Peabody Museum—from 7:15­ to 8:00 pm—where Harvard students will be available to share information about key cultural items on display.

Free event parking is available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage. This event is presented by Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology and Harvard Museums of Science & Culture in collaboration with Center for the Study of World Religions and Religion and Public Life Program, Harvard Divinity School; the Harvard University Native American Program; and The Constellation Project of the Planetary Health Alliance.
