Although History Bites is postponed until the fall, we invite you to enjoy our History Bites lecture on its originally scheduled date.

Challenging the Stereotype: Contemporary Native American Art

An Illustrated Lecture by Assistant Curator, Chelsea Garth

In conjunction with the exhibition of Grandmother Gestating Father and the Washita River Runs Ribbon-Like (1975) by T.C. Cannon (Kiowa/Caddo), explore the representation and empowerment of Indigenous people through Native-made art, the Native American activist movements of the late 1960s and 1970s, and the inclusion of Native women in both art and history.

In order to participate, we recommend that you download the Zoom app on a laptop or tablet before the presentation, and get into the Zoom room a few minutes early to address any technical problems. Registered participants will receive a link with the meeting URL via email.

You may register for free using the promo code ‘FREEREG20’. The current crisis is creating new financial challenges, including for organizations like The MATT. Paying the registration fee for these programs will help the Museum continue to bring information and resources to the greater Waterbury community. Nevertheless, the Museum wants to expand access to its programs during this time, so please access a free registration using the promo code above.
