Description

In the spirit of Sankofa, that one must remember one’s past to be able to move toward a clear future, The Mitchell Museum of the American Indian invites you to explore how indigenous cultures shape our history and identity today. This special program will explore the indigenous roots of American Indian and African American peoples in collaboration with the South Side Community Art Center, where panelists will look beyond the history of removal, slavery and war to tap the best of their indigenous tribal cultures, whether rooted in America or Africa. The discussion will also explore the history of mixed marriages and the evolution of cultural traditions. Audience members are asked to bring an object or story to share that helps them define their own indigenous identity. The program will conclude with a Q&A and offer tips on finding out more about your own ancestry.

This is part one of a two part series, the second program happening at South Side Community Art Center on October 15th.

This program is a part of the Chicago Cultural Alliance's Inherit Chicago. Inherit Chicago is a city wide festival of art, ideas and performance at neighborhood heritage museums and cultural centers. Head to InheritChicago.org for a full list of events!
