Event description

Description

November is Native American Heritage Month!

The significance of African culture and history has been downplayed in American society. The same has been done to Native American culture and history. Both Africans and Indigenous People in America have dealt with enslavement, conquest and colonialism by European nations and settlers.

Due to that fact, their history & culture has been commonly interpreted through a lens of white supremacy.

Please join educator and historian Jamon Jordan on a tour of the Detroit Institute of Arts where he will lead a tour and lesson on history and the artifacts from the ancient Egyptian, African, & Native American galleries. We will also visit the Ofrendas in the Dia De Los Muertos exhibit.

We will meet at the John R. Entrance of the museum. The museum is FREE for residents of Wayne, Oakland, & Macomb counties. There is a fee for the lecture tour:

Adults - $25
Youth (10-14) - $20
Children (Ages 9 and under) - FREE

Although this tour takes place inside of the DIA, it is NOT organized nor led by the Detroit Institute of Arts staff or management. If you have any questions about this tour, please contact Jamon Jordan at BlackScrollNetwork@gmail.com or by calling or texting 313-983-9216.
