Art for a New Understanding: Native Voices, 1950s to Now
August 29, 2019 – January 12, 2020
In this episode of the Nasher Museum Podcast, you’re listening to Danny Bell (Lumbee/Coharie), president of the Triangle Native American Society and retired program coordinator for the Curriculum in American Indian Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. “American Indians are alive and well, and we have many stories to tell,” he says. “John Wayne didn’t get rid of all the Indians. We are living and breathing.”
