Video Title:
In Dialogue: Smithsonian Objects and Social Justice with the National Museum of the American Indian
Description:
What is the connection between a desire for recognition of one’s culture and activism for equity? Heighten your civic awareness through conversations about art, history, and material culture. Each month, educators from the National Portrait Gallery will partner with colleagues from across the Smithsonian to discuss how historical objects from their respective collections speak to today’s social justice issues. What is the connection between a desire for recognition of one’s culture and activism for equity? Together with our co-hosts from the National Museum of the American Indian, we will explore questions of identity and assimilation in relation to a portrait of activist Zitkála-Šá/Gertrude Simmons Bonnin (Yankton Sioux), an outspoken critic of Indian boarding schools, and a 19th century Carlisle Indian Industrial School student uniform.
