Talk – 'Beaded Histories: Intergenerational Knowledge and Northern Plains Beadwork'
Jessa Rae Growing Thunder (Fort Peck Dakoda/Nakoda) will give a presentation titled "Beaded Histories: Intergenerational Knowledge and Northern Plains Beadwork." For generations, indigenous women have encrypted their histories in their beadwork, every stitch serving as a form of knowledge transmission. Growing Thunder will discuss the intergenerational knowledge base preserved in these "beaded histories" from her perspective as a traditional quill and beadwork artist. A reception and a special exhibit of beadwork follow the program.
This is a presentation of the Arnold and Doris Roland Distinguished Speaker Series, made possible by the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Roland. The Center for English as a Second Language is one building to the east of the Arizona State Museum North.
