Native American Voices, Nov. 4

The MU Libraries in conjunction with MSA student group Four Directions: Indigenous Peoples and Allies are pleased to present a very special event to take place in Ellis Library's Room 114A on Wednesday, November 4, 1-2pm. 

The spiritual elder of the Otoe-Missouria tribe, Dr. Aaron Gawhega, and his son Michael Gawhega, the tribe's Executive Director, are coming from Oklahoma to speak. In addition to the message from these elders, there will be a brief showcase of Native Americans' exact words as they were recorded in our library's collection of 19th century government documents, and a corresponding exhibit in the colonnade display cases. This will be a unique opportunity to learn about and appreciate the people for whom our state and our campus are named.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
