Museum of Native American History to Host Native Cultural Symposium

Seeking to renew the connection between historical traditions presented in its permanent gallery collection and modern Native peoples, the Museum of Native American History in Bentonville, Arkansas is set to present its annual Native American Cultural Symposium from June 14 -- 17.

This year’s theme is Reunification through Reinvention: The Creative Visions of Contemporary Native America. The goal is to bring together an array of Native elders and youth for a weekend of performances, presentations, and workshops.

Symposium events will take place at the museum as well as Record and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. Visitors and presenters alike will be offered opportunities for understanding and raising awareness of cultural context by promoting Native art, performance, writing, fashion, cuisine, and film.
