Title

Indigenous Representation

Abstract

My presentation complements an exhibit at Maxey Museum about the representation of indigenous people. My talk will cover three areas: curation as narration, relations between indigenous communities and Maxey Museum, and decolonizing museum spaces and displays. I will share images of historic objects installed in the display case on the first floor of Maxey Hall (near Maxey 104). These objects include rose water given to Maxey Museum by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) for protection from powerful objects; implements used to archive and keep track of objects; and a copy of the Native American Graves, Protection, and Repatriation Act. The purpose of my presentation and the complementary exhibit is to emphasize the importance of the museum in the college’s current efforts to build a relationship with CTUIR.
