'Native Voices' Opens Wednesday at USD
South Dakota Ag Connection - 08/12/2019
Native Voices explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. Stories drawn from both the past and present examine how health for Native People is tied to community, the land
and spirit. Through interviews, Native People describe the impact of epidemics, federal legislation, the loss of land and the inhibition of culture on the health of Native individuals and communities today.
The exhibition runs Aug. 14 to Sept. 25 at the I.D. Weeks Library at the University of South Dakota.
