How can a museum in New York collaborate with First Nations communities across the continent to update and revitalize a gallery that first opened more than a century ago? How do we reckon with the past, highlight contemporary voices, and build towards a future that benefits us all? Delve into a conversation about the challenges and opportunities afforded by the renovation with the project co-curators—Nuu-chah-nulth artist and cultural historian Haa'yuups (Ron Hamilton) and the Museum’s Curator of North American Ethnology Peter Whiteley—along with the Museum’s Vice President for Exhibition Lauri Halderman and Kulapat Yantrasast, creative director of wHY design studio. This conversation is moderated by former Director of the National Museum of the American Indian in New York John Haworth (Cherokee).
