The Couse Foundation in conjunction with the Harwood Museum of Art presents a Lecture by Christina E. Burke

10am
Harwood Museum of Art | Arthur Bell Auditorium

Christina E. Burke, will give a lecture titled A Pictograph is Worth A Thousand Words: Reading Native Pictography

For thousands of years, Native people of the Plains and Plateau painted images on hide clothing and other objects to record and remember stories of brave deeds and unusual events. Translating and understanding this narrative visual language provides insight into Native culture from Native perspectives. Featuring a Plateau shirt from the Couse Foundation, this presentation will explore the pictorial tradition of recording indigenous history.
