Founders Memorial Library Exhibits - November 2015


The current exhibit commemorates Native American History Month, with the theme of Native American Journeys. These journeys are literal (coming into the New World), spiritual (the development of new Pan-Indian religions such as the Native American Church), political (the struggles of the American Indian Movement, or AIM), and artistic (retention of traditional arts like basketry, jewelry-making, or pottery, and development of new traditions in painting, music and other forms of self-expression).
