"Let’s Take a Look"
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
MIAC Curators Examine Your Treasures

During this time, curators from The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture and The Laboratory of Anthropology are in the lobby of MIAC to look at your treasures. These curators will attempt to identify and explain any artifact or historic object presented to them. They prefer to work with objects from the Southwest but are willing to take a look at anything that is brought in. If they can not identify an object an attempt will be made to find someone who can. Sometimes, the discussion among the curators may become as much or more informative than the identification of the artifact.

Curators cannot appraise any items but can refer you to resources that will.

The Bead Project with Cannupa Hanska Luger
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Community Day to Contribute to Artist’s Installation

Join us on Saturday, February 24 for a day of making beads with Cannupa Hanska Luger. Drop in and make a few beads to represent a handful of indigenous individuals lost to violence.

For the most complete information - including video - on Luger’s proejct, visit http://www.cannupahanska.com/mmiwqtbeadproject

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Queer and Trans People BEAD PROJECT:

2” beads made from clay, unfired are requested from our communities to complete a monumental beaded portrait which will be created by artist Cannupa Hanska Luger from a photograph taken by First Nations photographer Kali Spitzer. This collaboration with community acknowledges our Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, Queer and Trans people. In Canada alone, the number of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women was at 4,000 in 2016 as noted in research gathered by the Native Women’s Association of Canada. 

We are aware that the narrative of MMIWQT expands beyond a specific region, and by starting here, with acknowledging this number and this place for this specific portrait and creating collectively, we can move forward and continue to address MMIWQT in all of our respective homelands. This community engagement is meant to activate our processing of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People through the action of doing and feeling in a collective effort to say ‘this is enough’.


As you create, we ask you to hold awareness that each one of these beads represents an individual from our Indigenous communities that we have lost.
