The Indigenous Nations Library Program (INLP) is proud to announce a literary exhibit entitled, “The Art of Indigenous Scholarship: Celebrating the Contributions of Indigenous Faculty at UNM.” The exhibit will be on view from Sept. 2016 through May 2017 on the second floor of Zimmerman Library in the Indigenous Nations Library Program offices and in the Herzstein Latin American Gallery. An opening reception will be held on Sept. 9 at 5 p.m. in the Herzstein Room.
This exhibit highlights the work of twenty-five Indigenous academicians at The University of New Mexico representing a wide range of scholarship and departments. Curator Kevin Brown says, “The selected literary works are much more than information, they re-humanize Indigenous people and counter the colonial narrative.”
Taiaiake Alfred said, “As writers and thinkers, we should be answerable to our nations and communities.” Indigenous Scholars at UNM understand this principle and they have the capacity to restore health and dignity to indigenous people and communities.
This exhibit is free and open to the public during normal operating hours. Find out more about the Indigenous Nations Library Program online. For more information about the exhibit, contact Kevin Brown at email@example.com or call 505.277.7433.
