Indian Country Conversations: Deconstructing the Myth of the West

Feb 22

LT Pick

After hosting four profound Indian Country Conversations (ICC) programs last year, MAM is dedicated to continuing this engaging series as a forum to keep these conversations going. Indigenous and non-Indigenous speakers are invited to lead these Saturday afternoon discussions to inspire dialogue specific to particular issues or themes addressed in current exhibitions in the Lynda M. Frost Contemporary American Indian Gallery.
Based on the exhibition “Gordon McConnell: When the West Was Won,” this conversation will focus on deconstructing the myth of the West.
These discussions provide necessary education and cultural exchange to bolster cultural understanding and break down stereotypes through visual art of Indigenous people who live on and off the nearby reservations surrounding Missoula.
