January Culture Class: Native Americans in Public Art

Jim Bear Jacobs and Ken Ford will take you on a virtual tour of public art in the Minnesota Capitol and other local public spaces, discussing the inappropriate images of Native Americans and the general lack of positive images of people of color. They will present at the monthly meeting of the Mendota Dakota Culture Class, Wednesday, January 29, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Dupuis House, 1357 Sibley Memorial Highway. Jacobs and Ford will pose the question: If we were starting from scratch and wanted to tell the Minnesota story through public art today, are these the images we would choose? Come and join the discussion. Jacobs and Ford are volunteers with Healing Minnesota Stories, which works to bring together Native and non-Native people to share stories and increase awareness of the value of American Indian language, culture, and our shared history.
