Cultural Heritage Exhibition – Native American Heritage Month 2022
The Grace Museum is collaborating with Abilene Christian University’s Introduction to Public History: Interpreting American Pasts course to create monthly exhibitions that coincide with different cultural heritage months throughout the year. These exhibitions highlight the narratives of various cultural groups that are integral to Abilene’s history while weaving these stores into the broader historical fabric of the United States.
November is Native American Heritage Month
Native American Heritage Month celebrates the history, culture, traditions, and contributions of Native people in the United States. It is also a time to educate and bring awareness to the challenges Native people encountered historically and currently.
Learn about the history and culture of Native peoples in Texas and the Big Country region and how they continue their traditions and preservation of their communities and culture.
This exhibition was curated by Kendyll Jacobs through the Public History Program at Abilene Christian University, Dr. Jeremy Elliott, Project Lead for the Paint Rock Research Initiative, and The Grace Museum.”
