CLASSES AND LECTURES
The Museum of Indigenous People has a long history of providing educational lectures, classes, and workshops. Below are some of the past offerings. For future opportunities, please see our events page.
NOVEMBER 5TH, 2022
Lyndale Curley will present Dajíícha Bee Atiin: Trail of Tears.
Enhancing the educational experience of the Museum of Indigenous People special exhibit, Broken Promises, Lynn will discuss the tortures endured by the Diné people and their resilient survival. The presentation will cover the 1866 Navajo Long Walk, the 1868 Navajo Treaty, the1930 Navajo Livestock Reduction Act, and the 1974 Relocation.
Lynn is the first open Native American transgender to hold an elected political seat as a Commission Vice President. A firm believer of always learning new information daily, she has personal insight and knowledge of Navajo history and understanding of the federal government. Her great-great-grandmother, who lived to be 104, was an advocate against relocation and shared personal stories of what she could remember. Culturally as well as traditionally driven by her Navajo heritage, Lynn helps the people of her community as an executive director of Interwoven, the first Native American community-based organization located on the Navajo Nation which provides advocacy, education, training, case management, and linkage to care for LGTBQ+2S men and women of the Navajo Nation. In addition to being a leader, she creates unique Navajo jewelry and weavings.
Please join us for this important educational lecture on November 5, 2022, at 1 PM in the MIP, 147 N. Arizona Ave., Prescott.
Regular museum admission rates apply. There is no additional charge to attend the presentation.
