Gallery Guide: Finding Native Voices

“Finding native voices” should be the goal of historical research involving American Indians. For many years, historians regularly omitted or misrepresented Native peoples’ accounts and points of view of their own histories. To the extent possible, this guide’s writings, in concert with the artworks in the galleries, attempts to highlight Native perspectives of key historical events and their cultures. University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Introduction to Native Studies students, taught by Dr. Brady DeSanti, created this guide for Joslyn Art Museum in partnership with UNO’s Service Learning Academy. It was designed to introduce Museum visitors to some of the major topics this type of class covers.
